Light switches are required to control fans, lights and all the other electrical fixtures in your home. They are an integral part of any electrical installation and have to endure a significant amount of wear and tear. If you find that a particular switch in your home doesn’t work as it should or has stopped functioning completely, it becomes important to get it replaced without delay. It’s never a good idea to postpone getting a faulty/damaged/dysfunctional switch replaced as that can be hazardous and you may experience an electric shock when you touch it.

When You Should Consider Light Switch Replacement

Loosely-connected switches can also result in arcing and you may hear a buzzing or hissing sound from the fixture. This too is an indication that you need light switch replacement without delay. We at Quick Connect Electrical  are a long-standing company in this field and have been providing excellent electrical services to both residential as well as commercial customers. If you need new light switch installation done, we can provide you prompt and efficient services at very reasonable pricing.

We know what it takes to provide our customers the best services and ensure that only the best quality materials are used in the work. Our electricians work meticulously and efficiently and ensure the work is completed to your 100% satisfaction.

Light Switch Problems – the Signs

We just discussed some common problems with switches, but here is a detailed look at things that can go wrong with light switches. These are the signs that there are problems in the installations:

  • The Switch is Stuck – This is quite a common problem with light switches and if you find that it is jammed or that it just doesn’t turn on or off the light, you would have to replace it. It’s never a good idea to force the switch and try to see if it works as that can be hazardous.
  • Overheated Switches – If you find that a switch is hot to the touch when you turn it on, or if you hear a buzzing sound emanating from it, you should call us without delay. The loose connections can result in an electrical fire and can be extremely dangerous too.
  • Flickering Lights Lights flicker when there is a problem with the bulb or if the bulb is loosely connected. Check if this is the case; if you notice there is no problem with the bulb, the problem might lie with the switch and it’s crucial that you call our Residential Electricians in Sydney to attend to the issue without delay.

Very happy with the great service and professionality! Mohammed was very patient and meticulous, going (quite literally) above (our deck's roof) and beyond to find and fix problems with some existing bad wiring. Explained all the problems in a very clear and informative way. Would highly recommend this service to friends and family!

"I would highly recommend Karl and his team for any work his professionalism and dedication to his work is remarkable.

We are currently building a 225sqm complex extension in Strathfield and he has continuously offered great advice on how to proceed with all things electrical from led lights and power points to HDI cables for the TV. He has always been on time and has gone above and beyond expectation. He and his team even worked 10hrs on a day that was 45 degrees. Once again I would highly recommend Karl"
