Why you should get an electrician to replace a light switch

Light switches are mostly functional. But if the basic variety in white plastic feels a bit plain, you can opt for something more decorative and stylish. Replacing a light switch involves working with electricity, so to keep you and your home safe, we recommend getting a Part P qualified electrician out to help you.

After switching off the mains power, your electrician will isolate the circuit and unscrew the faceplate. They’ll pull the cores from the terminals and connect these to the new switch. Once they’ve secured each connection, they’ll push the cable back into the mounting box and fit the new faceplate. Lastly, your electrician will switch the mains power back on and test your light switch before they go.
