Dim the Lights: The Eco-Friendly Way
Light dimmers can increase the ambience in any room.
With the added benefit of being eco-friendly, Lutron Electronics eco-minders, Maestro and Meadowlark, not only dim light, but can also dim your energy bills.
These energy saving dimmers, Maestro and Meadowlark eco-minders, from Lutron Electronics, claim to save up to 15 percent energy, $30 annually depending on how much you pay for electricity, according to the company.
The Maestro eco-minder is customizable with a delayed, fade-to-off function. The user can leave any room and have the lights fade off, or use this feature to get into bed before the lights go out. In addition, a power failure memory will store settings up to 10 years.
The Meadowlark offers a slide dimmer with smooth dimming operation. In addition, a rocker switch is available to turn lights to a set level (ideally, not 100% to save power).
Both include LED indicators: Red is normal, green shows energy savings.
Both the Maestro and Meadowlark are available in white, ivory, almond and light almond. Lutron controls are rated at 120 VAC, 60 hertz.
