I have a room with the main light on a dimmer switch.
If I turn the switch all the way down, then the light doesn't go off. And indeed, it doesn't even go all that far down.
I'd like the minimum to be lower (ideally off). What controls that?
Is it solely a function of the bulb? solely the dimmer switch? A combination of the two?
If it's determined by the dimmer switch, then is that something I can modify on the switch? If not, then what property should I be looking at when I buy the replacement switch? What value determines the intensity of the light at the lowest bound?
I assume that for the maximum brightness, I don't care about anythign except the bulb ... I just need to get a higher Wattage bulb, just as I would do for a regular, non-Dimmable switch.
Is that right?
