Our experienced, highly-trained electricians will be at your location right away to repair any outlet or switch! Light switches, electrical switches, circuit breakers, and an outlet repair or two, whatever you need. If you spot a malfunctioning outlet or other potentially dangerous indications, you should contact Emergency Electrical right once to avert a larger electrical problem at your home or business.
Switches exist in a variety of shapes and sizes, with many sets of contacts controlled by the same knob or actuator, which can activate the contacts concurrently, sequentially, or alternately. A switch can be manually operated, like a light switch or a keyboard button, or it can be used as a sensor device, like a thermostat, to detect the location of a machine part, liquid level, pressure, or temperature. Just a few examples are toggle switches, rotary switches, mercury switches, push-button switches, reversing switches, relays, and circuit breakers. Multiple switches can be wired into a single circuit to make it easier to control light fixtures, which is a common use case. When switches in high-powered circuits are opened, they must be engineered specifically to minimise dangerous arcing.
