I am known as the king of the dimmer at Madison Lighting. Putting in a light fixture… Is that on a dimmer? Swapping out a chandelier… It’s on a dimmer right? Adding recessed lighting to your kitchen? Don’t forget the dimmers! Dimmer switches add so much flexibility to lighting. I like to light the kitchen differently for breakfast (bright and upbeat) than in the late evening (soft, low light for a glass of wine while we’re planning our next football tailgate. You could make a case for dimming the chandelier in the dining room. And for dimming the lights in the family room while you’re watching HBO. Not only is dimming the light natural to the way you use a room; it saves a ton of money on electricity. Dimmers reduce power to the bulb, so they save energy and can extend bulb life. Incandescent and halogen bulbs last up to 20 times longer when used with a dimmer, increasing the money saved. LED bulbs run cooler when dimmed, which can also extend bulb life. A dimmed bulb gives you flexibility and savings. Perfection.
