One trick interior decorators use to make a space feel more special is to install dimmer switches so you can control the amount of light a fixture produces. But does a dimmer also mean energy savings? Turns out, mood lighting is also a good thing for the environment. It works because light dimmers reduce the flow of electricity to a fixture, which means the bulbs work at lower power outputs. It also means the lightbulbs will last longer, since there’s less wear and tear on them, too.
