Summary: Tom Kraeutler from The Money Pit demos Lutron's C•L Dimmers, which provide dependable control and performance for dimmable CFLs and LEDs, as well as halogen and incandescent bulbs.
TOM: Hey, it's Tom Kraeutler from The Money Pit here in Times Square focusing on eco-friendly home improvement projects that you can tackle yourself in a weekend. Now, many of us are using LED and CFL bulbs in our homes, and that's great because they use 25% of the power of an incandescent bulb. But if you've tried to use those with your original dimmers, you may find that they don't work that well. The lights don't come on or they sputter. Lutron has solved that problem. Lutron improves the dimmability of CFLs and LEDs with the Lutron C•L series of dimmers. Now, these dimmers can adjust, so they can handle mixed loads of light. They can handle LEDs, they can handle CFLs, and yes, they can still handle incandescents. This is the Lutron Skylark Contour. It's a very attractive dimmer. There are several dimmers to choose from in the C•L family, and they’re all part of the Eco Options program that's available at the Home Depot. So head on over to your local Home Depot store, check out the Lutron C•L dimmers or log on to HomeDepot.com.
