dimming tool Fun Tool: How Much Energy Can You Save?

Plug in the bulb type, hours used per day, wattage, and calculate your 5-year savings!

We are big fans of Lutron dimmers. The company – Lutron Electronics, Inc. – was founded over 50 years ago, so they have a lot of experience in the light control business. They are award-winning innovators. Plus, their products are just fantastic! The dimming controls are intuitive, the design is sleek, and the technology is sophisticated.

Not surprisingly, we sell a wide selection of Lutron dimmers.

I came across a fun tool this morning on Lutron’s website. It’s an Energy Saving Calculator allowing you to find out exactly how much electricity (and money) you can save in a particular room by adding a dimmer. You specify which dimmer you want to install, what type of light bulbs it will be used with, and how many hours per day you have the lights on.

Try it out for yourself! I plugged in the numbers for the light bulbs in my bathroom with a Maestro dimmer and found this:

More than justifies the $35 cost of the Line Voltage Maestro Dimmer, doesn’t it?
