Dimmer switches are designed to make it a lot easier to turn your lights on and off and set the mood conveniently. In fact, with lighting technology continuing to advance, there is nothing better than ensuring that your dimmer switch is fully up to date and is part of the latest technology out there. The reality is, utilizing the improvements that have gone into dimmer switches, knowing what kind or which type would work best for your purposes can help guide you towards the right one for you. Ultimately, it’s really about the purpose behind your dimmer switch installation. Here are some helpful ways to determine what type of dimmer switch is essential for your specific needs
Dimming LED Light Bulbs
As of late, LED bulbs have become increasingly popular and increasingly more affordable than never before. In fact, it is crucial that you check to make sure that the LED lights you have work with a dimmer — as some might not be able to compliment a dimmer compared to others. The reality is, some people are hoping to dim incandescent lights as well. Ultimately, no matter what type of bulb you have, you’ll want to make sure that a dimmer will work effectively and efficiently with them. As a result, having a professional electrician come out to see whether your light bulbs can handle a dimmer or not is the best way to ensure that your investment into a dimmer will provide you with a great return on your investment.
Understanding How Many Lights You’ll Want To Control
Knowing the type of lights you will want to control will guide you towards the best dimmer situation you will need. In fact, dimmer switches typically come with a number of different gangs. This means that if you happen to have one single light in a room, then you’ll probably only need one gang dimmer switch. That being said, if you happen to have a ton of lights, then wanting to control them separately will require more gangs to do so effectively and efficiently.
