Installing new lighting? Consider including a dimmer switch in that new installation. According to PECO, you can save up to $25 per year on electricity by using dimmer switches. Instead of the standard light switch which offers just one option for brightness, dimmer switches allow you to use less light, and thus less energy, according to your needs at the moment. Keeping lights on at a lower level also extends the life of your light bulbs.
