Fix It Friday: How to change a light switch Pt. 1

If your light switch has stopped working you can call an electrician or handyman to come in and fix it. However, you should know that this is really just a simple DIY task that most home owners can take on themselves. Here, we talk you through a typical installation for a single pole light switch. That is, a light switch that is used to control only one fixture. Of course, taking on electrical issues can be intimidating to many people. So, if you aren’t comfortable with the task, please visit our listings of handyman services or electricians to find a pro to take on the task for you.
