Installations Done Right the First Time

Your home is full of all types of receptacles and electrical fixtures, from GFCI devices to duplex outlets to motion sensors, and many more besides these. Amongst all of these essential components, it is critical to ensure that your switches and dimmers are installed the right way from the beginning. 

Although they may be small, these pieces are what allow you to instantly access your lighting systems, ceiling fans, and other electrical appliances. A properly working switch, particularly one that is smart-powered or automatic, will not only save you money from wasted energy but can preserve your home from fires. This is why you should never attempt to install dimmers or switches on your own, but always contact reliable professionals to get the work done.

Signs It Is Time to Schedule Repairs

Since switches and dimmers are not the most noticeable parts of your electrical system, it can sometimes be easy for homeowners to miss that something is wrong. This is a dangerous problem, however, since broken switches can lead to possible safety hazards. Because ignoring malfunctioning switches and dimmers can have serious consequences, you should always be aware of the warning signs, so you can quickly arrange for repairs.

Never hesitate to call for emergency support if you ever notice suspicious signs such as:

  • Switches that create sparks when they are turned off and on
  • Dimmers and switches which feel warm to the touch, whether or not you have used them recently
  • Devices that are oddly noisy whenever you turn them on or off
  • Dimmers and switches that have difficulty clicking fully into place
  • Your lights appear to go off after your switch is turned off, but then continue to use electricity
  • The lights flicker whenever you use the switches and dimmers

When you notice that any of these issues are occurring on your property, there is no time to waste, so seek out professional support in securing or replacing any old or loose dimmers and switches in your home.
