I installed a FEIT Electric dimmer switch on a circuit that controls 2 overhead lights.
I noticed that, even when not using the dimmer, the toggle portion of the switch is warm to the touch. Is this okay?
This is the switch:
Here are a few more details:
- The circuit includes 2 switches. The other switch is a standard non-dimmer switch.
- The 2 overhead lights each house 3 60W bulbs, for a total of 3*60*2=360W
- I think the bulbs in the light fixtures are halogen bulbs
- All electric wiring and circuit breakers are less than 15 years old
