Advantages of Dimmer Switches
Dimmable lighting products allow you to create a more ambient, relaxed setting and should be mandatory for most rooms. Especially if you have sufficient daylight available, you don’t always need the lights to be switched on at full brightness. They provide you with a more flexible method of control.
One of the hidden advantages of dimming and particularly with LEDs is that dimming extends their lifetime. Because they’re not always being operated at full 100% power, they're not being constantly overran, dimming reduces stress on the components and reduces the chance of overheating to occur. LED lamps last longer but are more expensive to buy than the now banned halogen ancestor. Extending their lifetime can potentially save you a lot of money as well as a reduction in maintenance costs.
Energy Efficient Dimming
When dimming your lights, you’re also reducing your electricity costs. Although the savings when dimming LEDs are respectable in terms of percentages, a reduction in a few watts isn't going to save the planet, unlike in the days of halogens when the savings were more substantial.
Just by having a dimmer switch as opposed to an ordinary light switch on the circuit automatically saves you 4-10% in energy. This is because dimmer switches don’t deliver the full 100% light, even when at full brightness the light output is only 90-95%.
On average a domestic dimmer switch will save you 20% in electricity compared to a normal light switch. Much more substantial energy savings can be achieved by installing occupancy sensors, especially in rooms that are often vacated.
