Be careful; and always call a local licenced electrician or electrical contractor
The message from our profession is clear; don’t attempt (even what you consider to be) the simpliest of electrical services on your own. The risk of injury or death when working with electricity is too great to risk it. Call a licenced electrician or local electrical contractor to complete any electrical services around your home.
