Downlighting

Kitchen downlights install in Sleaford

As we approach the time where the evenings are drawing in, many of us start to pay more attention to the lighting in our homes.

Downlights are a popular and attractive way to brighten up your home. However, poorly installed downlights are also the cause of a substantial number of fires in homes every year.

Also known as “recessed luminaries”, "spotlights" or Recessed Lighting" they are essentially light fixtures installed in hollow openings, usually ceilings. By installing them into these recesses, the light looks as if it is part of the ceiling instead of hanging down as a separate entity.

When a hole is cut into a ceiling to mount a recessed downlight, a potential fire hazard is created. This is why it is recommended that you always use a registered electrician to install any downlights.

So, can you get different types of downlights?

Yes you can.

Downlights operate at mains voltage (230 Volts) or are powered by a transformer at extra-low voltage (12 Volts).

Extra-low voltage (ELV) downlights are often described as "low voltage" or “safety extra low voltage” (SELV).

Do you trust your electrician?

local, reliable and trustworthy electricians in Sleaford

Unfortunately this scenario crops up quite often when I go out to visit clients.

I hear often that electricians turn up hours after they had arranged, or in some cases not at all. This understandably leads to much frustration on the customers part and a general distrust of electricians in general.

I have to say that this kind of 'problem' is very common within the trade. Marshall Sadler Ltd however pride ourselves on a professional service and we understand that time is very valuable.

A recent survey sent to UK householders reveal the dangerous risks that UK householders take when carrying out work on their home electrics.

Whilst not all DIY electrical work is illegal, it does require a common sense approach. It is perfectly legal for you to carry out like for like DIY replacements in your home, so
if you are looking to replace some lights in your living room or replace a damaged socket front you can do this - but only if you feel confident in doing so.

However it seems as though householders are not aware that they are breaking the law as they carry out some high scale electrical projects in their homes. The main
problem of course here is that there is no guarantee that the work is safe nor is it certified maeaning the work not only puts the home and family members at risk but it
could also cause problems at a later date if the house were to be sold.
