The Christmas light you don’t want inside!

It’s the festive season! And houses all around are decorating themselves in colourful lights. They make quite a statement outside. But here’s an easy way to make a statement, all year, indoors!

Bright light outside = great! Indoors = buzz kill!

With these lovely, long late Summer evenings, it’s nice to have the house opened at night. However, the sting of full on interior lights reduces the effect – a lot.

The easiest way to add mood, a range of other lifestyle advantages to your home and to save on your power bills, is to have dimmer switches installed.


Save Energy

When you dim a light, you can save up to 98 percent in energy and up to about 10 percent on your energy bill, plus your globes can also last longer


Improve your lifestyle

Tired of eating dinner or entertaining guests under the full glare of standard household lighting? Dimmer switches allow you to control the light and create the right mood. Notice how when you go to the cinema, they dim the lights? This is to enhance the visual of your movie. By adding dimmers at home, you can enhance the visual of your TV.

If you have young children, dimmer switches allow you to carefully check on their sleep – without risking waking them up under the full glare of full-bore bedroom lighting. Dimmers

Green light

When you dim your lights, the light isn’t on full power, which helps you save electricity. If you do need a little bit of light but still want to take advantage of the natural light available, turning your lights to the lowest setting will help save energy while giving you the extra light you need.

Your light bulbs will last longer when you use a dimmer to keep them lit. If you dim the lights by at least 25%, you will save approximately 1/5 of the electricity required. The softer the lamp fade, the longer the lamp lasts.


Gain control

In essence, dimmer switches give you complete control over the amount of light in a room. This allows your lighting to have a versatility of functions, from work light to romantic ambiance to night light.
