Does Your Home Need New Light Switches?

light switches

Don’t wait until your light switches stop working or they blow a fuse to replace them. You may need new light switches in your home, even if yours seem to still be working properly. If you are in the market for a new home, or you are selling your home, you should always make sure everything works properly before you sign any papers. Even though a light switch isn’t something you generally think about, other than turning it on and off, keeping up with how well your light switch functions and looks can be good for your home in the long run. When it comes to your electrical needs, Rose Brothers & Sons Inc. has the best electricians and contractors to get the job done safely and in a timely manner. We are a trusted family-owned company that has decades of combined experience, and it will be our pleasure to help you with your light switches.

If you are like most people, you’ve experienced a blown fuse at some point in your life. The fix may be as simple as flipping a switch in your circuit breaker, or it could be more complicated than that. If flipping the switch didn’t solve the problem, don’t hesitate to give us a call because we can solve any of your electrical problems. We can even help you choose how your new and improved light switch will look in your home. We can also install new light switch covers for you, or give you any information you may need to do it yourself.

If your light switches are dirty or outdated, then you might want to consider getting new light switches for you home to keep your home looking great for guests or even potential buyers. The natural oils from your hands can stain light switches over time and can make them difficult to clean. Cleaning your light switches regularly is important, but they also need to be replaced occasionally to ensure there is no hidden dirt impeding their function. If you plan on reselling your home, you can add value to it by something as simple as updating the style of your light switch. While it may seem like a difficult task, it is actually very easy to replace your light switch. The only thing you will need to install a new light switch cover is a screw driver. Potential buyers for your home will appreciate the care and detail you have put into keeping your home looking and working great!

Regardless of why your home needs new light switches, let Rose Brothers & Sons Inc. lend you a helping hand and keep your home working like new. Don’t wait until you have a major problem to replace your light switches. We specialize in residential, commercial, and industrial electrical construction for all your electrical needs.

Common Electric Wiring Mistakes

common electric wiring mistakesTo avoid common electric wiring mistakes, you need to have some knowledge about electrical current and electric wiring. There are many areas in your home where you can do repairs yourself but your electric wiring isn’t one of them. To make sure you avoid these common wiring mistakes, make sure you hire a professional electrician for all your residential or commercial electrical needs. Here are some common electric wiring mistakes we see:

Reversing Wires

It is easy to get the wires mixed up in your outlet. Unfortunately your lamps and other appliances will still working even though the wiring is wrong. The result could be fatal and you usually don’t notice a problem until someone gets hurt.  Every wire has a purpose and needs to be correctly used.  If you don’t know which wire does what, you shouldn’t be messing with your electric system.

Not Using The Proper Insulation and Electrical Boxes Correctly

There are right ways to do things and wrong ways. When it comes to electricity, it’s important that you don’t skip steps or skimp on materials. Wire connections should be insulated. All electrical wires should be connected inside a junction box. This prevents short circuits and sparks that could start a fire. Your professional electrician will do all the work according to NEC (National Electrical code) standards to make sure you and your family is safe. They will have all the necessary junction boxes and insulators to make sure your electrical system is safe and not over loaded.

Loose Connections

Your wiring should be done correctly to avoid common electrical wiring mistakes. When the connections are loose or put together poorly so that they become loose, a potential disaster could occur. Wires can arc and overheat causing a fire.

Common Electric Wiring Mistakes

It is important to know what you’re doing when you work with electricity. Hiring a trained electrician to do your repairs and electrical installations will prevent common electrical mistakes that could cause damage or hurt you or someone in your home. The money you save hiring a handyman to do the work isn’t worth the price you’ll pay if they don’t know what they’re doing. For complete residential and commercial electric service repair in Northern Kentucky, call Rose Brothers and Sons Electric.
