Light dimmers are a great way to set the mood and create ambiance in your home, while pull cord switches in bathrooms keep your fingers and moisture away from electricity. Both dimmers and pull cords can work for years without giving you any problems, but as with any appliance, these mechanisms do break down from time to time. To keep yours in working order, it’s good to give it a regular, professional once-over.
Because both these units work with electricity, we recommend asking a Part P qualified electrician to help. They are certified to work with electricity and are up to date with national regulations. Your electrician will make sure your dimmer is not controlling too many lights and that you’ve fitted the right type of bulbs. They’ll check for the build up of debris and damp in pull cord switches, and test your wiring and connections. If they spot anything serious, they’ll suggest the best way forward.
