Question about Heating & Cooling
It is better to switch over to the stepped switch type dimmer as the potentiometer( the control ) in these types wear off very easily.
So when the carbon track loses contact the varation of the resistance to feed the SCR does not happen but happens only att the contact point which is at the end.
So replace the potentiometer with the same type higher power rating or replace regulator with the STEPPED TYPE... which is also noise free.
