What factors influence the cost of a light switch installation?
Switches installations are complex and numerous factors will be taken into consideration while working on your quote. Indeed, prices differ if we replace a light switch or light switches like-for-like, if we need to move or add a light switch, it also depends on the number of points of entry, the fact of adding a dimmer, and so on. It’s more economical to replace a number of light switches or plug sockets at once.
What can increase the price of the installation?
Choosing a dimmer switch rather than a conventional light switch will increase the cost. A chrome finish might also add a few extra pounds of the bill.
Why do I need two electricians to perform my switches installation?
As electricity is a very hazardous area, we tend to work in pairs for safety reasons.
