Picking a Dimmer that is Right for You

There are many dimmer options to choose from:

  • new touch pad models turn on when you place your finger anywhere on their flat touch pad;
  • digital circuitry provides a soft, eye-pleasing gradual fade up or down when you turn the light on or off (ideal for seniors who have trouble gripping or turning switches);
  • rocker-action dimmers feature a stylish low-profile rocker switch that responds with one tap by bringing lights up to a preset level and a second tap turns them full on - a double tap to the lower portion turns them back off again;
  • the ultra-smooth slide dimmer which also comes with a convenient preset switch to recall a previous light level;
  • dual slide-type (or rotary) faders for ceiling fan/light combinations;
  • a push pad dimmer is the more modern option, with its return-to-neutral design, and always remains aligned, whether it’s on or off, with no dust-collecting webbing between switches and features a glowing blue locator LED to help you find it in a dark room. 

Get In the Mood!

Creating mood around the house is easy with dimmer switches, from low lights to get that real movie theater atmosphere to full brightness when reading a magazine or playing a game. Handy remote controls are also available.

Energy Savings

With a dimmer switch, less is more! Dim your lights by a quarter, you increase your energy savings by 20 percent; dim them by half, increase your savings 40 percent. You also extend bulb life up to 20 times when you dim a bulb halfway.
