Types Of Switches Used In Homes In London

  • Single pole switch
    The single-pole switch is the most commonly used light switch in London. It functions by controlling one output within the home. The single-pole switch is the easiest to install, repair and replace.
  • 3-way and 4-way switches
    Unlike the single pole switch, the 3-way and 4-way switches are quite complicated to install. They are commonly used in bigger rooms or halls — A 3-way light switch controls an output from only two locations. While a 4-way light switch controls an output from three different areas — this means that the 4-way light switch is usually connected to a more significant number of light switches.
  • Dimmer Switch
    The dimmer switch is used to adjust the level of lighting in a room. This type of light switch is gradually becoming popular because of its ability to create a calm atmosphere and a bright ambience in a room. The dimmer switches are environmentally friendly and also help to conserve energy.
