Had a mini fire break out in my common bathroom over the past weekend, and it took 4 days to set up an appointment, but I was willing to wait given the huge number of positive reviews for the company. The electricians (Mr Mani and partner) were able to re-use the existing concealed trunking; thus I was spared from having to drill a hole in the bathroom walls to accommodate a new set of cabling for the water heater point. Really appreciated that. Many thanks! 🙏🏻

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!

Communications via WhatsApp was convenient and efficiently handled. Very professional in assessing the problem with my water heater. Unlike other companies which simply wanted to replace the water heater, this company proposed checking to see if there is a problem with the switch. As a result, they saved me from unnecessarily replacing the water heater. The electrician, Mani, was very pleasant and helpful.I would strongly recommend this company.

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!

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.

 

Push Button Switches

push-button-switch-light-switch-everyworks-electrician-singapore

 

These switches are relatively uncommon as compared to other types of switches. Nevertheless, they usually consist of springs which compress then revert upon being pressed. Other types of push-button switches, meanwhile, are designed to stay depressed after being pushed while some revert to their original state once the circuit is disconnected.  Due to its simple design, the electrical installation process for this type of light switch is a relatively quick one.

 

Toggle Switches

toggle-switch-light-switch-everyworks-electrician-singapore

 

It can be said that this specific type of light switch is fairly common. In terms of design, it consists of a lever which can be angled towards a specific direction to power the light on or off. The circuit is either connected or disconnected depending on where the toggle is moved. Overall, professional electrical services can install this type of switch easily.

 

Selector Switches

Selector switches generally consist of a rotary lever or knob which allows you to select various lighting settings. In addition, they tend to come in two-mode layouts. This type of light switch has a more complex design as compared to a push-button or toggle switch. As such, its installation process may take slightly longer.

 

Signs That Your Light Switch Requires Repairing or Replacing

Knowing the signs of when to repair or replace your light switch, can allow you to detect the symptoms early, and save you the hassle of a malfunctioning light switch.

 

Slight Delay When Powering On Light Fixture

Should your light bulb experience a delay in powering on, it’s possible that your switch’s metal components have become overworked. If so, its inner wirings may be unable to close an electrical path. A light switch replacement may be required in order to resolve this issue.

 

Big Spark After Turning On Light Switch

Sparks should not usually be a cause for concern since they tend to be caused by a “load arc” which takes place during a voltage jump. A large spark, however, may be an indication of a defect in your light switch. In that case, make sure to seek the assistance of a professional electrician as soon as possible.

 

Noises Coming From Light Switches

Should this occur with your light switch, try to check if it’s merely a result of a dimming effect from your light bulb.
