What are the controls for a dimmer?
Rotary control features a dial that is used to change the brightness of the light. The brightness can be adjusted by turning the dial from left to right. The light will achieve full brightness when turned to the far right position and will be at its dimmest when turned to the far left position.
Slide control offers precise brightness control for your lights. Full brightness is achieved when the slider is at the top of switch and the light is at its dimmest when the slider is at the bottom of the switch.
Paddle controls are a simple up/down, on/off, type of switch with a sliding control on the side for dimming.
What is Single Pole vs. 3 Way?
A single-pole switch, also referred to as a single-pole single-throw (SPST) switch, controls one circuit and is either "on" or "off." To illustrate, a single pole switch is the only means of controlling a certain circuit.
A Three-way switch, also referred to as a single-pole, double-throw (SPDT) switch, alternates between two circuits instead of being "on" or "off." To illustrate, a light or group of lights can be controlled by two switches in different locations.
Where to use Single Pole vs. 3 Way?
Single pole is ideal for locations with a single point of entry like a bedroom, bathroom, or office.
3 Way is ideal for locations with multiple points of entry like a hallway or stairwell.
What’s the difference between a pole and throw?
The number of poles that a switch has tells you how many individual circuits the switch can control.
A throw count tells you how many positions a switch’s poles can connect to. If a switch has two throws, for instance, will tell you that a single circuit (pole) can connect to one of the two terminals.
Why should I install a dimmer?
Dimmers reduce the amount of power delivered to the light source, so they save on energy and can extend the life of the bulb.
Dimmers save you about 10% on your utility bill.
