    Not enough words to describe their excellent service. I messaged them late in the evening yesterday and they still managed to be extremely responsive. Today, the electrician arrived to resolve my issues and he was able to do so quickly. He even had the initiative to place a plug on my appliance which was damaged by a fuse. And in spite all of that, the price was still extremely reasonable!

    I was a little worried because it was my first time engaging an electrician, and I was not sure how to go about doing it and how the entire process would be. After contacting Daylight Electrician Singapore (DES), I feel more assured after Ms. Generose explained everything to me and set-up an appointment for me.On the day itself, Mr. Aru came over and did everything very efficiently. He was professional and friendly the entire time. He even offered to clean up the area after the installations were done.

    Tried to arrange handyman services with Marc and Rhae (customer support representatives) via WhatsApp. They were responsive, professional, and asked useful questions. Eventually found the date & time slots that worked for me. Got the ceiling LED light replaced by Mr. Houssain (electrician) and the bidet valve and sprayer installed by Mr. Khan (plumber). Both handymen arrived on time and did the jobs well.

    This is my 2nd time using Daylight Electrical services. I have my water heater switch replaced by Mr Hossain, the electrician. He ensured the newly installed switch is working fine before handling over. He was very helpful when I asked about my other lightings condition. He checked on them and say it is working fine.I would highly recommend Daylight Electrical as they are very transparent and honest with their pricings.I would also like to comment Ms Rose, customer service support for her prompt replied to my queries and fast appointment fixing.I will definitely use their electrical services again in time of need.

    Awesome customer service. The CSO, Joanna, who attended to me was very nice & polite. Managed to book an earliest available slot for site visit by the electrician. The electrician, Aru, arrived promptly and resolved the issue within twenty minutes or so. Payment using PayNow. Received an e-receipt on my hp about 10 to 15 later. Overall the experience was smooth and pleasant. I am very satisfied with their service.

    For so many days, I couldn't get any hot water so I contacted this provider. Upon initial examination, I was informed that my water heater required replacing. Even after being changed however, there was still no hot water. It was then discovered that there was an electrical issue present which needed to be resolved. Though it took longer than expected, the handymen were able to fix all issues. Thank you so much for that.

    Had blew a ballast in one of my lightbulb holder in the morning, WhatsApp them for a quotation and it was $86 nett inclusive of site inspection and labour cost. Way cheaper than those independent contractor recommended by your Town Council or hardware shop. Initial appointment arranged was for next day but received a call they could attend within the same day in the evening. Technician came over around 820pm and all was done within 15 minutes! Impressed by their service level! Highly recommend to all who needs help in their electrical works!

    Had problem with lighting in 2 roomsThe electrician (Mani) was punctual. He knows his work well and diagnosed the problem instantly after viewing the lights. Fast and professional in his work. Very humble and courteous person. Most important of all, he is honest in his dealings. Only charged for repair for one room as the fault lies only in one room. Price is reasonable.

    I called United Electrician to look at a flickering lamp. They came and charged me $50 saying lamp needed to change but have to wait one month till Circuit Breaker is over. It will cost $150 including supply and fitting the lamp. I can't wait one month and offered to find my own lamp. They said if I find my lamp, they will charge me $50 for installation. After I bought the lamp, they claimed it is $140 to fix the lamp instead of $50. I didn't want any more to do with them and called up Daylight Electrician. Ms Goh from Daylight listened to my situation and provided an offer instantly after I showed the photos. They charged me $80 which was reasonable in my opinion and with no hidden cost or nonsense. They best part is they managed to come within the same day I called, technician was polite, knowledgeable and explains to me patiently why my lamp was flickering (something United Electrician cannot do, they only say have to change the whole lamp). They gave an E receipt on the spot which is environmental friendly too. After my horrified experience with United, Daylight was like an Knight bringing immediate brightness to our dining room. We do not have to eat in the dark for one month until the Circuit Breaker is over! I will definitely recommend Daylight for your hassle free electrical problem.

    DW is truly my saviour after a horrible couple of weeks! Long story short - i originally called another company (A*ple) to do a chemical wash for my aircon, and they managed to short-circut the wiring to my aircon, spoil the connectors on my compressor and refused to answer my calls after that - all these happened in 2 weeks. The most unprofessional company-I will see how I can sue them for damages. At my wits end, i called Daylight electrician who help link me up with DW as well, and within 2 trips in 3 days, they managed to solve the wiring problem, fix the compressor, AND clean my aircon. Awesome customer service all around! Ms Lim - excellent communications, friendly, fast, humorous and positive and it was reassuring that she was always on the ball. Raju and Ramesh - very professional, competent and dedicated. On the last day, they stayed back an extra 2 hours as they kept testing my aircon to see that everything worked well. Thanks to the awesome team at DW Aircon Servicing, my aircon is working better than ever. Would highly recommend DW to everyone!

    New water heater failed to turn on after installing. Plumbers from Mr Plumber said it is likely an electrical issue so refered me to Daylight Electrician. Guy came down the same day and 1 look at the situation, knew what the problem was. Bad wire. Replaced the whole stretch of wire from wall to the heater and my broken switch box. Done within an hour.Excellent job. These guys know what they are doing. I'd recommend and will use their service again.

    I want to thank daylight electrician for their excellent work to solve the overheated wiring issue for my old storage water heater. I had engaged a few plumbers who couldn't fix the issue and had to find an electrician who could troubleshoot. The licensed electrician, Mr Ang and his worker did some test and found out that some of the wiring needed to be replaced. The work was promptly done on the same day and I had my water heater up and running within an hour. Really impressed by their knowledge and skill. Great job!

    The electrician helped me change 4 power socket installation, including rewiring and repositioning of the points in the house. The electrician came with another electrical worker and both of them did a very tidy job and even provided advice on which is the best wiring route, which was different but better than what I initially thought. Overall very friendly humble service with reasonable price, will highly recommend them.

    Though they’re often lacking in maintenance, light switches are actually an essential part of electrical works in any location. As such, it’s important for you to be meticulous when picking out the most appropriate light switch for your home. Once you’ve purchased a light switch, trust only a professional electrician to do a light switch installation and other light switch services to avoid any sort of hazard. It is never safe to work on a light switch on your own, especially if you lack the proper skills and knowledge required.

     

    Different Types of Light Switches and How They Function

    Essentially, a light switch is a crucial component when it comes to electrical light installation because without them, you would be unable to power your lights. There exist many different types of light switches available for purchase. Some light switches are merely intended to turn lights on and off while others consist of a brightness adjustment feature. In case you’re in the process of choosing a light switch and wondering which type is most appropriate for you, make sure to explore the following:

     

    On/Off Light Switch

    on-off-switch-light-switch-everyworks-electrician-singapore 

    Needless to say, this type of light switch turns lights on and off from a specific source. As such, electrical contractors also refer to them as “single location switches” or even “single throw switches” and “single pole switches”. An on/off light switch functions by powering a lightbulb through the use of a one-wire connection. Some homeowners prefer this type of light switch considering that it doesn’t require complex electrical wiring thanks to its simple control mechanism.

    An on/off light switch consists of a spring-loaded gate which closes when the switch is turned on. In the process, the circuit is closed as well thereby allowing the power to flow from the switch to the lightbulb. On the other hand, when the switch is turned off, the gate closes and prevents the current from flowing to the bulb. Should you wish to install this type of light switch, a licensed electrician can do it for you fairly quickly.

     

    Single-Pole Light Switch

    This type of light switch consists of two toggles which can be switched from a single location and are usually labeled as ON or OFF. Because this light switch has a relatively simple configuration process, a reliable electrical contractor can have it installed easily.

     

    3-Way Light Switch

    3-way-light-switch-everyworks-electrician-singapore

     

    A 3-way light switch is essentially both a single pole and double throw switch. Though only one hot wire needs to be connected to this switch for it to function, it also alternates between two additional wires called “travellers”. These two wires are, in turn, connected to another 3-way switch which powers the light bulb. Compared to an on/off light switch, the light switch installation process for this type of device is slightly more complicated.

    A 3-way light switch’s configuration is designed to resemble a ‘V’ pattern. The pointed intersection acts as the terminal to which the circuit breaker’s hot wire is linked. As a result, it is commonly referred to as the “point terminal” or “the common” and is often denoted by a dark screw. Meanwhile, the two traveller wires connect to the two open points called the “traveller terminals” which are indicated by bright brass screws.

     

    4-Way Light Switch

    4-way-light-switch-everyworks-electrician-singapore

     

    A 4-way light switch has a more complex electrical wiring set-up compared to the previous two. This type of switch is regarded as being both a double pole and double throw switch. The former is an indication that the switch connects to two traveller wires which are, in turn, connected to the electrical panel’s power source. There are also two other traveller wires which carry power to the light bulb. Additionally, this type of light switch is also referred to as a double throw switch since it alternates between the two pairs of traveller wires upon being turned on.

    Once a 4-way light switch is turned on, one of two traveller wires heats up to carry power to the bulb. But if the switch is set in such a way that the hot wire is connected to only one traveller, then the light eventually turns off.

     

    Rotary Dimmer Switch

    rotary-dimmer-switch-light-switch-everyworks-electrician-singapore

     

    In terms of dimmer switches, a rotary dimmer switch is perhaps the most common type. Its appearance usually consists of a circular knob which rotates clockwise or counterclockwise to adjust brightness. With this switch’s simple design, having it installed by a professional electrician in your home would provide great convenience.

     

    Sliding Dimmer Switch

    sliding-dimer-switch-light-switch-everyworks-electrician-singapore

     

    This type of switch merely consists of an on/off toggle, thereby making it fairly simple to use. In addition, it enables one to adjust light intensity however way you want. Seek help from a professional light switch service if you wish to have it installed.

     

    Touch Light Dimmer Switch

    touch-light-dimmer-switch-light-switch-everyworks-electrician-singapore

     

    Though this type of light switch is quite atypical, it has recently started to increase in popularity. It consists of a more modern design in that it uses a touch control mechanism as opposed to the more traditional toggle system. That said, because this type of light switch has more advanced features, it may require more regular servicing compared to other switches.

     

    Selecting The Best Light Switch For Your Home

    Having explored the different types of light switches, it’s now time to differentiate them according to their design. This is especially vital when selecting the best light switch for your home. Whichever light switch you choose, seek help from electrical switch services to have a professional install it for you.
