Frequently asked questions

Answers to common questions about

Switch and socket installation

How do I install a new switch or socket?
Diagonal Arrow icon

To install a new switch or socket, first, turn off the power to the area at your circuit breaker. Then, carefully remove the old fixture, noting the wiring connections. Follow the manufacturer's instructions to wire the new switch/socket, ensuring correct connections. Finally, securely attach the fixture to the wall or box. Remember, if you're unsure or uncomfortable, it's best to seek help from a professional electrician. You can also use the Home+ app to connect with experienced electricians for guidance or assistance.

What should I do if my switch or socket isn't working?
Diagonal Arrow icon

If your switch or socket isn't functioning, start by checking the circuit breaker to ensure it hasn't tripped. If the issue persists, carefully inspect the wiring for loose or damaged connections. Make sure the wires are properly secured and the switch/socket is correctly wired. If you're still facing problems, consider reaching out to a licensed electrician for a thorough inspection and repair. The Home+ app is a convenient way to connect with skilled electricians who can help diagnose and fix the issue.

Can I replace a single switch with a dimmer switch myself?
Diagonal Arrow icon

Yes, you can replace a standard switch with a dimmer switch. Start by turning off the power at the circuit breaker. Remove the old switch and note the wiring setup. Dimmer switches often require specific wiring, so follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully. Attach the wires to the new dimmer switch as indicated, then securely mount the switch back into the wall box. If you're uncertain about the process, it's wise to consult a professional electrician for assistance. The Home+ app is a valuable resource to find experienced electricians who can guide you through the process or handle the installation for you.
