If you’re looking to set the mood with your loved one, this Valentine’s Day why not have an experienced electrician install dimmer switches? Trying to get the perfect lighting can be a struggle, with too much light you’ll be blinded every time you walk into a room and with too little light, you may find yourself unexpectedly walking into objects or straining your eyes.
Dimmer switches solve both issues, as you’ll be able to adjust the lighting in a room to an amount that suits your specific needs at any given moment, without needing to switch out your bulbs for lower or higher wattages each time. It works by restricting the amount of current that flows to a light bulb allowing you to choose if you’d like your room to be brightly lit or just a little dimmer.
