Dimmer switches allow you to set the lighting mood of a room, from a soft, dramatic glow to a dazzling brightness, and all ranges in between, simply by turning a knob. They also conserve electricity when set at a position other than full on. Installation is similar to other switches, except that the control knob is pressed on after the switches are mounted and the plate re-installed.

With dimmer switches, you pretty much get what you pay for and you will probably be happier if you purchase a higher quality dimmer that doesn't make any noise or create a sound signal that could be picked up by radios or televisions.
