living room with ambient lighting by dimmer switch

Think about the last time you went out to a nice restaurant. The lighting was probably warm and inviting, maybe even romantic. Now think about your last trip to a fast food restaurant. You probably didn’t experience warm, inviting ambiance. The reason for the difference between the two is dimmer switches.

When it comes to lighting your home, you have a variety of options and one of these is to install dimmer switches. As premier providers of Miami electrical services, Miami Electric Masters knows a thing or two about what makes dimmer switches desirable and we’re sharing them with you below.

Increase Energy Efficiency

Installing dimmer switches in your Miami home helps you to reduce your energy bills. As you dim the lights, you lower the amount of power sent to your bulbs and lower power usage reduces your energy costs.

Sleep Better

Some scientific studies indicate that dimmer switches may have less of a negative impact on sleep cycles. The reason behind this is that when you lower the lighting, the light temperature lowers as well, mimicking the setting sun.

Enhance Your Decor

As mentioned above, dimmer switches help you create a mood in your home. They soften the appearance of all your decor, creating a cohesive atmosphere in any room.

Extend Bulb Life

When you turn the switch down, the bulb receives less power, reducing stress on the filament of incandescent or halogen bulbs. The less stress your filament has, the longer your bulb will last.

Easy Installation

If you’re comfortable with DIY home improvement projects, you can install your own dimmer switches. To get the benefits of these switches without the hassle or guesswork, you can also call the dimmer switch installation pros at Miami Electrical Masters.
