## How many lights can one switch control?

The basics of light switch wiring

There is no limit to the number of lights on a circuit. The load of the fixtures is what determines how many lights a circuit can accommodate. A conventional 15A circuit can have up to 1400W of lighting loads connected to it.

## How do you split a light switch into two?

1. Get a 2-gang box to replace your existing 1-gang box.
2. Get a new switch.
3. Remove your existing box and install the 2-gang box in its place.

## What is a double pole switch?

What is a double pole switch? Double pole switches are connected to two separate electric circuits. They essentially contain 2 switches which are linked together and can complete the circuit either simultaneously or staggered.

## Why would you use a double pole switch?

A double pole switch can be used to control light and a fan or 2 lights on separate circuits. It is easy to wire a double pole switch to work as a single pole switch because only one side is used instead of both.

## What is a triple pole switch?

• SPST (Single Pole Single throw)
• SPDT (single pole double throw)
• DPST (double pole, single throw)
• DPDT (double pole double throw)
