Re: On wall switches... another option

On wall switches... ()

If you can find them, the mercury light switches last almost forever, can't remember what I paid for the one in my Kitchen. I installed it over 40 years ago, it is switching a chandelier with 8 bulbs, for 30+ years these were 60 watt bulbs for a total of 480 watts! A couple of years ago I changed all the bulbs to LED so now it only uses less than 40 watt! It is a "silent" switch with no "snap". I remember when I purchased it there was a lifetime warranty. Doubt if I would try to return it if it did fail, but there is no sign of failure yet. It is the most used switch in the house.
