Both dimmer and pull chord switches make life that little bit easier at home. But if you’re suddenly left in the dark or can’t switch off a light, it could be due to wear and tear, dust particles and moisture, or broken parts and loose connections.
These units have intricate designs that you’ll have to pull apart. They’re also connected to your home’s wiring, and since working with electricity involves a number of safety risks, it’s always best to get a Part P qualified electrician to help you.
Your electrician will first turn off your power supply before they remove the plate, switch and wires. They’ll test all the parts and replace anything faulty. When they’re confident that everything is in order, they’ll connect and secure the wires, mount the switch and do a final test before they go.
A Part P qualified electrician is certified to work with electricity in and around your house. They get assessed regularly and work to the latest safety regulations. We have hundreds of these skilled professionals on our platform, so you don’t have to spend hours looking for someone in your area. Simply tell us where you are and we’ll match you with a Local Hero.
