Installing a Light Switch

Turn Off Power – Before you begin to install a new light switch, it is imperative to ensure that the electricity to the wiring that you will be working with is turned off. You will want to locate the breaker and shut off the fuse that is supplying electricity to that region of your home or commercial space. It is also important to use a voltage tester at the site to be sure that you have eliminated power from the appropriate wiring. Failure to complete these steps could lead to electrocution, serious injury, and even death.

Replace / Install the New Switch – Next, you will need to remove the old switch or prepare the wall for a new switch by cutting into the drywall at the desired location. You will then need to loop the circuit wires around the switch screws and mount the switch in the upright position. How you loop the circuit wires will depend on the type of switch that you are installing and what kind of screws it uses (terminal, etc.). Finally, you will need to screw the faceplate to the wall to complete your installation.
