Switches & Dimmers

Dimmers | Switches

One of the best lighting options available today is the dimmer switch. Dimmer switches control the current sent to a light fixture, allowing you to increase or decrease the amount of light in a room. The switch is usually a slow sliding lever or turn dial, which allows you to manually adjust the brightness. There are many reasons why dimmers are so popular among new home builders and remodelers and why Best Electric Service can help you choose the right dimmer switches for your home.

Best Electric Service cares about the quality and convenience of any product or service we offer. Not only are dimmer switches environmentally friendly, but they can also significantly contribute to the ambiance of your home. Regarding being eco-friendly, since the light doesn’t always have to be on full power, dimmer switches can help you save electricity.

Dimmer switches can also create versatility in your home. By dimming the lights, you can create a romantic or cozy feel. Dimmed lights also create a beautiful effect when you and your family or guests sit down to watch a movie. With young children or overnight guests who aren’t familiar with your home, dimming the lights at night allows them to easily find their way to the bathroom safely and without disturbing others.

Dimmer switches likewise make your light bulbs last longer. With a dimmer switch, a halogen light bulb typically lasting 5-6 months can last up to 3 or 4 years. Unlike incandescent, it will increase bulb life. Dimming fluorescent sources will provide savings in electricity and the convenience of controlling light levels.

What Others Say About Us

I hired Joe Bartels and Best Electric Service to add a 240V circuit for a hot tub at my home. I couldn't have been happier with their thoroughness and customer focus. They worked with our installation schedule, listened to my input and were creative in routing the final conduit. Quick and very professional. They have my highest recommendation!

I called Best Electric for a problem I was having with non-working pendant lights. Joe promptly called back to schedule an appointment. He arrived on time, was straight forward with the pricing and was able to diagnose and fix my problem in a relatively short time. While he was at my home he also was able to hang a new chandelier. I would highly recommend Best Electric!

I was extremely pleased with the work Joe did for me this past week and wanted to say something positive so others would consider him for jobs.  But the rating has to be done through a google account, and I do not want to have an account with them - the information required is personal, and I have no doubt sold immediately to places that do solicitations.  But if there is a way to insert my comments, so they contribute to the rating system, here they are. I wanted to say this:  I have an older home and a not-so-robust budget.   Joe inspired confidence with his knowledge, solved a sticky problem for me with my new range, left everything looking good and accommodated my work schedule.  His fees were competitive and, most importantly,  I am confident the work will stand up to the test of time.  I would recommend him highly to anyone asking for an electrician.
