Snap, crackle, and pop is something that you associate with a popular cereal brand. Snap, crackle, and pop should never be associated with your light switches. If you notice that some of your lights switches are making a crackling sound once you turn them on, it’s a common sign that the switch is old and needs an upgrade. If you need help or advice from a certified electrician, Mr. Electric of Dallas is always here to help!
The way your light works is it receives energy and electrical current through a continual flow of electricity. When the light switch is ‘on’ the electricity is flowing, and when the light switch is ‘off’, that flow is interrupted.
If your light switches are making crackling noises when you turn them on, you are at risk for a fire hazard. There may be loose or bad connections somewhere in your electrical wiring, or there may be a lot of wear and tear on the wires from years of use. Our lighting fixtures are one of the most common things we use in our homes, so it’s no surprise they will need updating at some point.
If you notice a crackling noise in any of your light switches when you turn them on, it’s probably time to switch the ground light switch. Here’s how to do it…
