Lisa energy is so expensive even with the lower price of oil, so any savings is very much appreciated.

As I age, I find dimmers to be my best friends. Lol. Actually, I do love the ambiance as harsh light bugs me. We also have motion lights outside, I always know when a critter is in the back yard.
