Hi, all. After perusing the forum, I am blown away by the resources here, and feeling better that I might have some support as I work through the effort of trying to replace ALL of the light switches in my home.so far, I have spent the last two evenings upgrading light switches in our laundry room and my sons bathroom. I am using GE on/off and dinner switches. I am slowly becoming more proficient at the process and have only shocked myself once (clear forgot to turn breaker back off)!
- Certainly niot cheap. At $30-40 a switch plus another $20 for add-ons for the 3-ways, this is going to be a very expensive project.
- Each room is taking me about an hour.
- I hope the V2 hub I am awaiting will provide greater reliability. I find sometimes that things just don’t work.
- I am thankful that thus far, the wiring in my home seems pretty modern. Have come across a couple boxes as I planned the project that don’t have white neutral bundles. Have seen some switches that apparently don’t need a neutral. Should I get those, or should I try to have an electrician install a neutral line for those boxes?
Anyway, I will keep you all posted as I progress.
