Affordable Switches

Recommended Posts

My husband got these light switches at kelantan lane.

I've always thought these switches are expensive, like ard $15 each.

So was rather surprised that they are actually really cheap ! :bangwall:

If staying north, can try this light shop along Sembawang Road, 'Tuas Hardware Kaxxxx', beside the under renovation Sembawang Shopping Center. . This shop I bought my lights from also selling this type of big rocker switches, brand is 'Hager' if I remember correctly. Price is about the same $4.50 - $5 for those simple ones. For those 3 gang 2 way can't remember the price. Plus the SA say buy more she gives better rate. :P

Are thsse switches certified by PSB ? If yes, then cheap lor..

Yup, They're all certified by PSB

As for material, I think its PLASTIC RESIN.

And It's semi-matt finish.

They have switces in stainless steel as well

Not too sure about the cost tho !

Wow, I'm interested. However, you think it is easy to DIY to change?

Is all the size standard ones to fit most HDB?

To just change the plate is easy if you know a little of electric stuff, ie. ensure the wire goes back to the same connection point on the new face plate, especially those two way lighting switch.

VERY IMPORTANT!!! Make sure you OFF the main electrical supply to your house before doing for your own safety. If not sure, better get someone else to help as electricity can KILL....

As for the size, there are small and big, just measure your existing switch plate and get the right size.

Its for the water heater, when you on, the red light glow. Its to remind you to off it after you bath....

Looks like most brands are selling around the same price starting from 1 gang at $4.50....

Not sure which brand better, just choose the best design and cheap one will do. He He.

If you really not very sure, just check the price and get your contractor to quote you for the job. Safer this way. If too ex, tell him the material price you get and he earn so much!! Better lower his price. !!
