Save money in just an hour with a new dimmer
News from Chicago Daily Herald:

Used to be that the dimmer switch was put on ceiling fixtures to help you add ambience to your room. In the past, they were limited to only certain light fixtures but, throughout the past few years, they have been improved to work just about anywhere. They are easier to install on a wider variety of fixtures.

Well, it turns out that they also are a super way to turn energy usage down.

If you have average DIY skills, you probably can remove a standard light switch and install a dimmer easily and start saving money in just an hour or so. Here are the basics of how’s it’s done.

• Make sure you turn the circuit breaker OFF to the switch that you are going to replace.

• Remove the switch plate cover, and then remove the screws holding the electrical switch in the box. Pull it forward so you can have access to do the wiring.

• Before removing any wires, check the instructions for the dimmer to make sure you understand it fully before moving forward. You should also check to make sure there is enough room in the old box for this new, larger switch and the wires. Replace the box if you need to. It’s not good to stuff the wires into it too tightly.
