Lighting Upgrades for the HomeReplacing a Light Switch in Your Home is Easier Said Than Done. Here’s Why.
Electrical switches come in many difference shapes and sizes and are designed to perform a wide range of functions. When it's time to upgrade switches, don't risk do-it-yourself disasters, call Clover Electric. Besides the obvious danger of an electrical shock, today’s new switches can be really tricky to install, for a few reasons.
- Removing an old switch means disconnecting brittle wires. If the wires break inside the wall, you’ve got a problem.
- Today’s new switches are packed with electronics. This makes them bigger and bulkier than old switches. Yes, they’ll fit in to the switch box, but there’s little room left for the old wiring. If you can’t pack in the old wires, you’ve got a problem.
- Are you looking to replace a switch that’s part of a three-way switch system? If you don’t get the wires in the right position, none of the switches will work - and you’ve got a problem.
