Light dimmers and pull cord switches can work for years without any issues. But if your lights start to flicker or the pull cord gets stuck, it may be time for a replacement. This involves working with electricity, so we recommend asking a Part P qualified electrician to help you. These professionals are certified and will do the work within national safety regulations.
After discussing the job with you, your electrician will isolate the circuit and make sure the new dimmer or switch is right for your home’s power supply. They’ll undo the tightening screws and check your existing wires for damage or wear and tear. If everything is in order, they’ll remove the old unit, connect the wires to the new dimmer or switch and secure it to the wall or roof. Your electrician will turn the power back on, test the light dimmer or pull cord switch and clean their work area before they go.
When you choose a local expert, they’ll replace your light dimmer or pull cord switch quickly and professionally. With hundreds of professionals on our platform, we can match you with a qualified electrician in your area in minutes.
You can coordinate diaries and decide on a date that suits you both. Your electrician won’t have to drive far, so there’s no need to factor in travelling costs and you can book them for emergencies and any other non-urgent jobs too. They’re also fully up to date with national regulations. It’s never been easier to find a reliable Local Hero.
