Switch Testing and Installations


Switch Testing and Installations

Electrical safety is a lot about ensuring that all the electrical installations in your home/office/retail space/ industrial establishment are in the best condition at all times. Not only should they function well, but they must function optimally. The switches and related electrical equipment see a significant amount of wear and tear and over a period of time, you will find that some of these don’t work the way they should. The thing to keep in mind is that most electrical equipment may not just stop working all of a sudden; it does show some warning signs. Here are some signs of problems in switch installations:

  • Flickering lights
  • Lights that don’t come on at all
  • Lighting fixtures that stay on even after you have turned off the switch
  • You experience shock when you touch an electrical appliance or any electrical equipment like a computer or printer etc.
  • You hear a buzzing/ some other strange sound coming from a certain switch
  • A switch that’s very loose
  • Other

If you have noticed any of these things, do not delay in calling in a professional, insured electrician to get the switches tested.

Why are Switch Testing and Installations necessary?

  • The condition of the switches and the switchboard determine the performance & to some extent, the durability of the electrical equipment and appliances in your home. Switches regulate the power supply that’s necessary for these to function smoothly. Testing them helps ensure they are in a good condition.
  • Switch testing is a good way of protecting your switchboard from potential hazardous electrical faults.
  • Faulty switches are a fire risk; when you get the testing done regularly, it helps identify which switches may be in a bad condition and they can be replaced without delay.
  • If the wiring and switch installations in your home/office are 15-20 years old, it’s important that you opt for Switch Testing and Installations. This increases the safety aspect of these fixtures and the new switches will be able to cope with the higher, power-consumption demands of modern –day appliances.
