We successfully installed yet another dimmer switch in our apartment today, although we went through the normal frustrations of not knowing what to do with our grounding wire (turns out old apartment buildings in San Francisco don't have grounding wires so you can just safely remove them from the new switch!) and feeling slightly sketchy about working with the ancient, cloth covered wires that were revealed when we removed the old switch from the wall.
But regardless of any installation challenges, we are all for replacing every light switch in your home with a dimmer switch. It makes such a big difference! Click here for a how-to on installing your own dimmers.
