That's better than just diving in. As roadfix said, having a friend show you how the first time is a great idea.

The most important thing it to make sure the power going to that switch is OFF.

I've been shocked a few times. The las time, I got shocked, I was replacing a ceiling fan for a neighbor, and the fan motor and the light on the fan were on two separate circuits. I have no idea why someone would wire a house that way, but I went from standing on a ladder to siting on the floor very suddenly.

I now have and inexpensive probe that tells me if electricity is present where I am working. You just poke it around the wires you will be working with, and it will beep if power is present.


Something like this should be available in HK. They are cheap, and can save your life.
