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.
More than justifies the $35 cost of the Line Voltage Maestro Dimmer, doesn’t it?
Speaking of energy savings with dimmers, have you seen our infographic video about “A Greener Light?” If each U.S. household installed just one dimmer, we would save $230 million in electricity costs as a whole. Incredible!
