LED Dimmer Switch: Range Of LED Dimmer Switches
The primary reason for the existence of dimmable lights is that they permit you to create a more ambient, relaxed setting. Or if in case you have sufficient daylight available you don’t always need the lights to be switched on at full brightness.
One of many hidden advantages of dimming and particularly with LEDs is that dimming extends their lifetime. Because they’re not being operated at full 100% power, they are not being overran causing less stress on the components and fewer chance of overheating to happen. As LEDs are costlier to buy than halogen, extending their lifetime can potentially prevent some huge cash and reduce maintenance costs.
When dimming your lights, you’re also reducing your electricity costs. Allow the reduction remains constant in terms of percentages, the energy savings from dimming LEDs won’t be too high unlike with halogen or incandescent.
Having a dimmer switch versus an ordinary light switch on the circuit automatically saves you 4-10% in energy. It’s because dimmer switches don’t deliver the total 100% light, even when at full brightness the light output is barely 90-95%.
On average a domestic dimmer switch will save you 20% in electricity compared to a normal light switch. Way more substantial energy savings may be achieved by installing occupancy sensors, especially in rooms that are often vacated.
We now have LED dimmer switches available in a number of brands and styles including dimmer modules that can be used as a retrofit solution to your existing wall plates. The brands we offer include Varilight, Lightwave RF, Lutron and Hamilton LEDstat.
