A DIY project that's easy and saves electricity! Install a dimmer in 10 steps so you can save money and make lights last longer.
Tools to get started
Before you begin, you'll need these tools:
- Flat-head screwdriver (the kind with a tip that’s a straight line)
- Phillips-head screwdriver (the X-tip kind)
- Electrical tape
- Needle-nose pliers
- Wire stripper
- Red wire nuts
- Dimmer switch
- Matching cover plate
Tip: Don’t use a dimmer on a circuit that includes an outlet. You could damage such products as vacuums and electronic devices if they’re plugged into a dimmed outlet.
