On another forum (home improvement topics on an automotive site) someone suggested using a dimmer switch to help lower electricity costs. It got me thinking about how the heck these work.
I'm guessing that they just add resistance in series to the circuit and that they don't reduce electrical consumption, but again that's jsut a guess.
I know this isn't really inspection related but figure this is the most likely place to get the facts.
