The benefits of dimmable lighting are almost endless. From creating the perfect mood for romantic evenings to sheltering your eyes in the early morning hours, there’s virtually no limit to the uses you’ll find for the dimmer switch in your apartment at The Crossing.
Here are some tips on how you can use your dimmer to your advantage:
- Save energy. When you dim your lights, you can save up to 98 percent of the energy you normally use, which returns about 10 percent of your energy dollars back to your wallet.
- Adjust the mood. Whether it’s an evening at home, or you just need some special lighting for some pensive thoughts as you type out your next novel on the keyboard, a dimmer makes it as simple as a twist of the wrist.
- Increase the longevity of your light bulbs. Bulbs can last many times longer than their original operational life when you reduce the amount of electricity flowing through them by 25 percent.
- Reduce eye strain. Dimmable lighting allows you to adjust the brightness to the task at hand, like when you need brighter lighting for reading.
