The smallest components of your electrical system are key to allowing you to access power. If your outlets are malfunctioning, there is no way to charge your mobile devices or plug in your coffee pot in the morning. When your switches are failing, you cannot turn on the lights to make your way downstairs at night. Your dimmers may be small, but they are also extremely important to the rest of your home’s electrical system. If any of these features are not working properly, talk to our knowledgeable electricians about our dimmer services.

Why Dimmer Installations Should Only Be Conducted by Professionals
You might assume that because it is such a small, simple-looking device, a dimmer should be easy to install. However, attempting to install a dimmer yourself is never a good idea, since so many things could easily go wrong in the process of wiring the switch. Not only do you need to know precisely which connections to make, but the installation must be made with components that are compatible with all the other switches and outlets in your house.
Without many years of professional experience, this is almost impossible to accomplish safely and effectively, especially if a more complex dimmer switch is involved, such as a three-way or four-way variation. By refusing to attempt an installation yourself and saving it for the experts to handle, you can protect yourself and your family from facing an electrical catastrophe.

In today’s changeable economy, homeowners are always looking for better ways to save money. One of the easiest ways to accomplish this is by scheduling professional repairs for your electrical system right away. This will allow you to avoid expensive replacements and inefficient energy consumption. Because this principle applies to your dimmers, it is a good idea to look out for malfunctioning ones as much as possible.
A few of the clear signs your dimmers need repairs include:
- A decreased range to the levels of dimming
- Your light bulbs are burning out far too quickly
- The lights refuse to turn on at all
- The lights will suddenly shut off before turning back on
- The lights continue to flicker even after you have turned them off
- Your dimmers feel hot to the touch
- You can hear buzzing, crackling, or humming sounds from the dimmers and switches
If you have noticed one or more of these symptoms, there is no reason to delay. You can prevent a costly replacement, as well as an unfortunate electrical emergency, simply by reaching out to Matrix Electric right away.
