Residential Electrical Switches Offer Many Options

JMC Electric offers many different residential electrical switches for lights and ceiling fans. Everything looks better with well-designed lighting. JMC Electric can also outfit your residential lighting with a variety of sensors, timers, and other components for better control and energy efficiency.

Residential Electrical Switches For Lighting

A toggle light switch is the most common type of light switch and is used for most lighting applications in homes and buildings. Toggle switches are actuated by a lever that is angled in two positions, enabling the circuit to be switched on and off.

A push button switch may come in a variety of configurations regarding how the circuit is activated and cut. This kind of switch is a dual position device that can be pressed and released.

A selector switch can be actuated by either a rotary knob or lever with multiple positions to control on or off of different circuits by rotating the handle.

A proximity switch works by utilizing a sensor that actuates the current when it detects movement, and switches off when the person leaves the room.

A photoelectric switch utilizes a sensor that activates the circuit when the area is dim, and shuts off automatically when normal light levels are restored.

A dimmer switch regulates the flow of current to the system, enabling the bulb to emit an adjustable amount of light.

Smart light switches are a big trend right now in Kansas City homes. These residential electrical switches allow you to program lights so they turn on as you wake up and off after you leave for work.

JMC Electric offers many different residential electrical switches for lights and ceiling fans.

Types Of Ceiling Fan Switches

Most residential electrical switches packaged with ceiling fans are chain switches, the standard fan speed control. Three speeds are operated by a chain hanging from the fan.

A tap fan control switch has two tap buttons, one each for the fan and lights. Light settings go from soft candlelight to bright white light and fan speeds are from slow to full speed.

A single slide fan and light control is used with only one fan and one lamp. This switch allows for 3 fan speeds on a vertical slider knob, but the lights and the fan are dimmed simultaneously. 

A single slide fan control push button light switch is available with three speeds and controls a single fan with a light package. The light switch is a flat button on/off toggle.

A dual slide fan and light control provides individual slide knobs for both the fan and the light. The light slide provides full range and preset dimming, and the fan slide provides four fan speeds and preset control options.
