Not All Electrical Switches are Created Equal
When you buy an electrical switch, there are a hundred of different styles and types to choose from. To be honest, trying to figure out the best one for you can be pretty overwhelming! At CableOrganizer.com, we have a wide variety of different switches, including:
- Rocker Switches
- Combination Switches
- Designer Switches
- Occupancy Sensors
- And much more!
It's important to figure out what kind of light you are going to want for the room you are buying the switch for. Also, consider any other electrical appliances that will be controlled from that outlet. Once you have that nailed down, you can begin to explore different switch options.
Some of the Different Electrical Switches
Most people think of a switch as something that only turns things on and off by moving the position of it. Sure, that is one kind of switch, but they get a lot fancier than that! For example, a rocker switch is pretty basic. It is an electrical switch that uses a spring-loaded rocker to go from off to on. However, you can turn things up a notch by getting the Leviton Decora rocker switch which stays brightly illuminated when it is in the off position so that you can easily see it in the dark. It eliminated the hassle of fumbling around in the dark looking for a switch.
Combination switches are great when you want to make the most of a limited space. It brings two switches together, and they are highly durable devices. Designer switches are affordable yet have an architectural design to fit smoothly against your wall. They also come in a bunch of different colors so that you can choose what works best for you. Some can even be controlled by remote!
A toggle switch is a basic switch most people think of when they picture a switch. It is extremely economical and simple. Occupancy sensors, on the other hand, can detect motion and automatically turn on. This is great for anything from office buildings to rooms in your own home. They are also energy-efficient because they automatically go off when no motion is happening.
Dimmer lights allow you to adjust the brightness of your light. Some days, you may enjoy an intense light, while other days you may need some low light. With a dimmer switch, you aren't committed to one or the other. We carry a dimmer switch that also has a nightlight. It is ideal for places like bathrooms where you need a little light but doesn't necessarily want to light things up completely.
As you can see, there are a ton of different electrical switches out there to choose from. If you need help finding the right one, we are happy to point you in the right direction!
