Residential Electrical Switches: Make the Right Choice for Your Home!

Residential electrical switches quick easy upgrade to homeWhen you’re looking at replacing residential electrical switches in Kansas City, you have a lot of options. As with most electrical things, you’ll want to know if your switch choice is safe and effective. JMC Electric can help you pick the right residential electrical switches for any purpose in your home.

Electrical Switch Types for Lighting


A toggle light switch is the most common type of residential electrical switch for lighting and is used for most lighting applications in bathrooms. Toggle switches are actuated by a lever angled in two positions, enabling the circuit to switch on and off. Toggle switches can be either single-pole, double-pole, or three-way.


A proximity or occupant sensor switch works by utilizing a sensor that actuates the current when it detects movement and switches off when the person leaves the room. These are especially popular for bathroom lighting.


Smart residential electrical switches in Kansas City allow you to turn your lights on and off on a schedule from a smartphone app, often using voice commands, motion, or even just entering the room with your smartphone. A smart dimmer can also change the brightness of the fixtures it controls rather than just switching them on and off.

Trust the Pros

Broken residential electrical switches can be a cause of great frustration. But replacing them requires knowledge and expertise that most people don’t possess. To make a switch safe, durable, and reliable, it must be designed to hold the contacts firmly together under positive force when the switch is closed. If this small detail is altered in installation or repair, it can cause major problems.

With our extensive electrical knowledge and experience, JMC Electric can provide quality workmanship at competitive rates with a full guarantee on work and the manufacturer’s warranty on parts.
