By adding dimming controls to a high-efficiency, halogen-based lighting system, it's possible to shorten payback period by 25% or more and change bulbs less often.
Concord, NH (PRWEB) December 16, 2009
GreenPoma.com, an online retailer of premium energy-efficient lighting solutions, is pleased to announce that it will begin offering four varieties of eco-friendly dimming controls from leading lighting control manufacturer Lutron, Inc. The company's new eco-dim(TM) dimmers guarantee a minimum reduction in electricity consumption of 15% and an increase in lamp life by at least threefold when replacing a standard switch.
"Dimming light fixtures is a smart strategy by which consumers can save electricity and improve room ambiance," said Peter Ellinwood, Co-Owner of GreenPoma.com. "By pairing these new dimming controls with new high efficiency halogen lamps from Philips and General Electric, attractive benefits emerge: a better return on investment and lamp life of 9,000 to 12,000 hours."
Available in classic Rotary, Ariadni®, Skylark® and Diva® models, the eco-dim(TM) energy-efficient lighting switches retail from $14.99 to $37.49 (matching wall plates are extra). They work in single-pole or three-way applications and can each handle a load of 600 watts (approximately 10-15 high efficiency halogen lamps).
"While not as energy efficient as CFLs, we're big believers in high-efficiency halogen lamps for their instant-start, superb light quality, impressive dimming qualities and lack of mercury," continued Ellinwood. "By adding dimming controls to a high-efficiency, halogen-based lighting system, it's possible to shorten payback period by 25% or more and change bulbs less often."
