Why you should get an electrician to install a light switch

Whether you’re replacing a faulty light switch unit or have decided to update a room with a sleeker-looking unit, we recommend booking an electrician for the job. Installing a light switch involves working with electricity, so it’s essential to hire a professional.

Your electrician will first switch off the power supply before turning their attention to the existing wires. If the ends are rough or damaged, they’ll carefully clip these parts to make sure the wires and stress points won’t fail in the future. They’ll then place the switch in position, attach the power and grounding wires and screw on the cover plate. When they’re done, they’ll turn the power back on and test your new light switch before they go.
