Light Control with Dimmers

Want to save some green and the environment? The Lutron dimmers, sensors and timers offer you the ability to cut down on your energy bill and allow your light bulbs to have a longer life. Installing dimmers is one of the easiest green home improvements you can make. We offer Lutron dimmers, sensors and timers so you have a variety of options to help you add energy-saving to a single space or throughout your home. With Lutron light controls, you can save energy AND improve your working environment and quality of life at home.

Dimmers – Cut your energy bill down by dimming your lights when they are on. By dimming two halogen light bulbs by 35% in your dining room they will use 30% less electricity, the light bulbs will last 10+ years and you will save about $60 over five years.

Sensors – Install daylight harvesting sensors in your home and save some green while saving the planet.
Sensors will detect the change of natural light and adjust your artificial lighting throughout the day. This system can be connected to a shading system that will actually adjust the shading in your rooms to allow for the optimum mix of natural and artificial light. Sensors can also be used to detect when there is movement in a room. This means that the lights will automatically turn on when you enter the room. Combine these with a timer system and you will be able to have your lights automatically turn off after a set period of time if you forget to flip the switch on the way out of the room.

Timers – Timers allow for you to set a specific amount of time before the lights in a room turn off after no movement has been detected. Many times the lights get left on because we are in a hurry or forget to turn them off, timers ensure that the lights get turned off and allow you to save energy and money on your electric bill.
