Being able to do your own basic home electrical repairs can save you a lot of money, so instead of calling in a professional electrician to replace a damaged light switch, why not do it yourself? Replacing a light switch is probably one of the easiest electrical jobs that anyone can do, and is a great way to introduce the whole idea of home electrical repair.
To begin, you are going to need to gather together a few basic items, all of which you either already have, or can purchase at any home improvement store. You are going to need masking tape, Sharpie marking pens, screw drivers and a new set of switches. Since you may be dealing with more than one type of screw, you are probably going to want to have a complete set of screwdrivers on hand. Once you have gathered these items together you are ready to begin. Again, before you begin, be aware that working with electricity is dangerous, and as such should be treated with respect and care.
