Dimmer Switches

Dimmer Switches

Since Joel S. Spira developed the technology for a domestic dimmer switch in the late 1960s, they have become increasingly popular as a means to save energy and give customers greater control of the light levels in their home. Dimmer switches are easy to apply to a metal wall and are compatible with a growing number of LEDs, bulbs and lamp types. They also prolong the life of bulb because the power output is directly correlated to the amount of illumination, thus saving money as well as providing an elegant aesthetic to your home.

Range of Dimmer Switches

Click through to one of our Dimmer Switch product ranges below:

Today, rooms are used for various purposes, so a light source like dimmer switches that offers more than simply on or off can be much more useful compared to traditional lighting. For example, a romantic dinner under a glaringly bright light wouldn’t have quite the right ambiance, whereas reading or working requires a significantly more illuminated space. With dimmer switches or a touch dimmer switch, Electric Counter provides solutions that offer much-needed versatility for your home and business.

The Electric Counter boasts over 1,500 styles of dimmer switches and touch dimmer switches, so we’re confident you’ll find style and price that works for you. We offer variations in material such as metal chrome, plastics and brushed steel; colours including white, metallic and black; and even the number of rotary adjusters on a single pane, up to 4 switches. Our dimmer switches are reliably sourced, with Nexus Metal, Nexus 900 Series and Hamilton Hartland dimmer switches included in our diverse product range. We also offer component parts for dimmer switches such as a separate on/off switch modules for more flexibility. Customers can even choose between either a screwed or screwless flat plate dimmer switch.

Deciding on the most appropriate dimmer switch for your specific requirements can be a difficult task. Customers have the option to choose between flat plate screwless and original screwed flat plate dimmer switches depending on your personal preference. If you’re unsure which make and model is right for you, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us today via phone, email or our online contact form.
