There are quite a few reasons. Dimming alone greatly reduces energy consumption
and may pay for itself through energy savings not to mention extending
bulb life 10 times or more.
Lighting systems that combine occupant sensing can also turn lights on as someone enters a room and then off
when they leave saving energy from leaving lights on when not needed.

RFI is a buzzing noise which may occur in some audio and radio equipment when solid-state dimmers are used nearby. Although most dimmers contains a filter to suppress RFI, additional filtering may be required in some applications. Typical examples of RFI-sensitive equipment are AM radios, stereo sound systems, broadcasting equipment, intercom systems, public address systems, and wireless telephones.RFI can be transmitted in two ways: · Radiated · ConductedNote: The suggestions i...
To use a compact fluorescent bulb on a dimmer switch, you must buy a
bulb that's specifically made to work with dimmers (check the package).
We don't recommend using regular compact fluorescent bulbs with dimming
switches, since this can shorten bulb life.
When 2 or more dimmers are in the same wall box, they are considered
"ganged". To install ganged dimmers, simply remove the dimmer side
sections from the heat sink. The maximum wattage capacity for each
dimmer is reduced (derated) so that the dimmer does not overheat.
