Thanks for your electrical question Dale.
Dale, you really have me wondering just what kind of light switch you have. Please advise – Thanks!

    I’ve noticed that when using the living room light switch, a double switch, to turn the central light on, the light sometimes works sometimes doesn’t but there’s a weird three chirps that occurs whenever I do switch on or off. What is it? How do I fix it?
