Electrical Tips and Preventive Maintenance

Dimmers

Sometimes a dimmer seems warm when you touch it. This is completely normal. Dimmers naturally get warm when they are in use, especially if there is more than one dimmer in the same location.

Some issues with dimmers:

Never connect a regular dimmer to low-voltage lights, paddle fans, or any kind of motor. These devices require special dimmers.

Never exceed the recommended wattage of the dimmer. Regular dimmers are rated for a maximum of 600 Watts. The is equal to 10 sixty Watt bulbs, or 6 one hundred Watt bulbs.
