Installing Light Switches
Serving Portland – Beaverton – Newberg – Salem – Canby
In any home or business, electrical components may need to be replaced. You may also find that a room is in need of additional light switches. Typically, light switch installation wiring is completed during the initial construction of a building, but PC Electric can come into your home or business, check the circuitry to run the additional wiring required to add more light switches to a room.
The components of a light switch are housed in a small plastic box behind the switch. The inner workings of light switches wear out even with typical use, and an unreliable light switch can even become a fire hazard. The professional lighting contractors of PC Electric can help with your light switch replacement and installation.
