Tonight I removed an old switch from one of the walls in my living room. We recently bought our house, and there were two holes in the wall where the old thermostat and humidity controller were. I patched those up and then took care of this old switch that was just as ugly as the two holes in the wall. The switch was a dual button on/off toggle switch from what it looks like. I removed it to install a new flip switch and put a nice face plate on it. However I noticed that after testing the copper leads with my voltometer, I find that the circuit reads 40VAC. I have no idea what this outlet does at this point in time since the old switch was broken.
Will my 15A-120VAC switch I bought at Home Depot tonight work well as a replacement?
