  • How much electricity used?

    Hi Guys;

    I have a question. I have many Insteon KPLs SWLs etc… A friend of mine came over and said even though a dimmer may be dimming at 50%, I may not necessarily be using 50% power.
    Some dimmers still use 80%-85% electricity even though they are dimmed.

    Does anyone know if the Insteon stuff is the same?

    No worries, triac dimmers used in the Insteon line are very efficient. At the 50% setting, the load actually only receives power for 50% of the AC sine wave.

        Dimmers used nowadays are very efficient. So no need to worry.
