Signs Your Light Switches Need Replacement
There are two good opportunities to replace light switches in your home. The first is when you are renovating or updating a space. The second is when you notice they are wearing out. It’s always impressive to see the difference that can be made during a remodel by simply updating switches. However, there are other warning signs to look out for that your light switch may be damaged.
This can include:
- Flickering lights
- High energy costs
- Humming behind a light switch
- Outdated design
- Burning smell or discoloration
- Poor response (takes the light time before turning on)
If you want to replace a light switch with a dimmer, it’s important to work with an experienced electrician. New switches and plate covers can be chosen to emphasize the style changes you are making to a room. Furthermore, installing dimmers lets you have functional levels of light exactly where you want it in a room.
Benefits of Dimmer Switches
Having dimmable lighting in a room can completely change the function of the space. High levels of light promote a feeling of energy and productivity while low levels of light can bring about a relaxing and warm atmosphere. Installing a dimmer light switch can also add versatility to the rooms in your San Diego, CA home.
For example, think of a dining room. Light can be turned up bright when the room is being used as a workspace. Then they can be dimmed to add a hospitable feel to a dinner party. Dimmer switches add the convenience of being able to take advantage of different lighting for different occasions.
Repairing a faulty switch can also help avoid any electrical shortages or fire risks, which are common concerns as your electrical system ages. Be sure to schedule a wiring inspection today!
Why Hire a Professional for Light Switch Installation?
Installing dimmer switches can be as easy as swapping out a conventional switch for a dimmer switch. However, enlisting the help of the electricians at Point Loma Electric and Plumbing can be helpful. With new LED technology, an electrician will need to verify that you have dimmable bulbs in place, that all the wiring is up to code, and that the switch itself has been installed currently. Even with older incandescent technology, an electrician must verify that the lighting is appropriate. We pride ourselves on customer service and we love helping you select the best options for your home. Let us help you navigate your lighting upgrades so you can be sure that all the appropriate equipment is in place to help you beautify your home.
Whether you need new switches installed to complete a renovation or would like to upgrade to LED technology, we have the knowledge to serve you. Call (619) 224-0672 today to schedule dimmer switch services in the San Diego area!
