LED technology is currently considered the most energy-efficient solution for homes and public areas. At the same time, it has also great potential to develop and can be used in multiple ways. LED lighting can be also equipped with practical dimmers that allow you to adjust its brightness according to your needs. How does the dimmer work? How will its presence affect your comfort and our home budget? 

How does a dimmer switch work? 

dimmer switch is a practical addition to the electrical installation that supports intelligent light management. With its help, we can change the intensity of light according to your preferences at the given moment. It works like a transformer that effectively reduces the power flow. By reducing the light intensity, we also reduce energy consumption, which will result in lower electricity bills. LED dimmer switch can be used for any compatible light source that is connected to the same circuit. There are many possible ways to use them, for example with ceiling lighting, floor lamps, night lamps or even LED strips installed under the stairs. 

Types of dimmers. Which one to choose? 

There are several different types of dimmers to choose from. The simplest ones resemble a classic light switch - they are mounted on the wall and are great for example for the kitchen lighting. Another option is a dimmer switch with a knob - it's extremely easy to operate and works particularly well with furniture or stairs lighting. Among the more modern options, you can find a dimmer with IR remote control, using infrared. It is extremely convenient to use because it allows you to change the light intensity from a distance of up to several meters. You can manipulate the lighting in the living room - turn it off, on or change the light intensity - while preparing dinner in the kitchen. Another type of dimmers is an RF dimmer with several flashing programs that help you to create interesting lighting arrangements and effects. 

Energy saving

This is one of the biggest advantages of dimmers: when integrated with luminaires, they make it possible to significantly reduce energy consumptions, which results in lower electricity bills. The actual saving may be up to 50%, which means you will pay half as much as usual. We adjust the light intensity to our rhythm of the day - when necessary, we can dim it, and brighten it up when we need better light intensity. In the case of ordinary lighting systems, we cannot decide on their intensity, we can only turn them on or off. That's why dimmers play such an important role in smart homes, where many systems are automated to reduce energy consumption costs.

Light that creates great atmosphere 

Dimmers can be used to create interesting visual effects at home. The possibility of dimming the light in the living room during evening relaxation will help us create a cosy atmosphere and will allow our eyes and body to rest better. When we play board games with children, we can increase the intensity of light. Dimmers, especially those that use IR remote control, are also useful when you have a built-in lighting system in your stairs - when your child wants to go upstairs to their room in the evening, we can increase the light intensity from the living room, so that your toddler has no problems with reaching the top. Dimmers are also useful when you have a home office - when it gets darker outside, they can slowly increase the intensity of light inside. You don't need to use full light intensity when it's only beginning to get dark, but it will take care of your eyes and the efficiency of your work whenever an additional light source is needed.

Use dimmer light switch in your house - in the living room as an important element that improves the comfort of your everyday life, on the stairs to increase the safety, in your child's room to create the best conditions to develop good sleeping habits.
