Light Dimming Systems
Light Control Increases Comfort and Improves Productivity.
Our energy-saving light controls provide a comfortable and productive visual environment.
Enhancing the comfort levels of a space leads to increases in productivity. Through our Total Light Management™ solutions, better lighting not only can reduce the energy consumption of a room, it can improve the quality of work from its occupants. Every dimmer automatically saves 4-9% in electricity—even at the highest lighting levels—over a standard on-off switch. And when users choose to dim their lights, even more electricity is saved.
Quite simply, the more you dim, the more you save. A standard light switch only saves electricity in the “off” position. While incandescent lights are typically associated with dimming, all lighting sources, including halogen, CFLs, and, LED bulbs, can be dimmed. For example, a halogen light source dimmed 35% reduces energy use by 28%. On average, dimming an incandescent or halogen light will reduce energy use by about 20%.
Using a dimmer in your home in place of a standard switch on an incandescent bulb can result in yearly energy saving of approximately $8.00. If the light is dimmed 50%, and if you take into account the extended life of the bulbs, you can experience up to $30 in annual savings*. Dimmers reduce power to the lighting source or bulb, so they save energy and extend bulb life. Incandescent and halogen bulbs last up to 20 times longer when used with a dimmer, increasing the money saved.
