Looking for an easy way to control the lighting in any room of your MD, VA, or DC home? You may want to consider installing dimmer light switches—they provide adjustable voltage to a light fixture, thereby allowing you to increase or decrease the amount of light in a room. The switch is actually a slow sliding lever or turn dial, which allows you to manually adjust a room’s light setting.
There are several reasons why dimmers are so popular today among new home builders and remodelers in Baltimore and Bethesda, MD, Alexandria, VA, and Washington, DC.
Dimmer Switches Save Energy
Dimmer switches block varying amounts of electrical current from flowing into your lights. Not only does this save energy, it can also help extend the life of your lights! The amount of energy saved is, of course, not guaranteed, and savings may vary depending on factors such as how much you dim the lights, how long they are dimmed, and which types of bulbs you choose. Ultimately, this means that you get to save money on your energy bills.
If you can’t install dimmer switches in every room, try to install them where you can get the most bang for your buck – typically in master bedrooms, kitchens, dining rooms, hallways, and living rooms.

Dimmer Switches Control Room Ambiance
Whether you want to watch a movie in the family room or host a dinner in the dining room, dimmer switches can enhance the atmosphere and set the mood. By dimming the lights, you can create a romantic or cozy setting. Also, if you have young children or guests over who aren’t familiar with your home, dimming the lights at night allows them to find their way around.
Dimmer Switches Are Durable
A dimmer will make light bulbs last longer—the softer the light, the longer the bulb lasts. You can add between three and four years to a bulb’s life with proper dimming.
