As your local electrician in Bradford, I often take calls from customers who are struggling to find a reputable electrician to help them with small electrical jobs such as replacing light fittings.
They will often ask “Do I need an electrician to replace a light fitting? Or am I wasting your time?” My answer is, it is never a waste of my time to make sure an electrical job no matter how small, is completed safely.
Why use an electrician to change a light fitting?
All electrical jobs, whether they are large or small, can be risky. Electricity is a notoriously tricky customer and is as dangerous when changing a light fitting as when upgrading a fuseboard. A qualified electrician will have spent many years learning how to work safely with electricity and will know exactly how to minimise the risks to both them and your household. Changing a light fitting may look easy but there are several things that can go awry. Light fittings do not always simply swap out easily, they may have different settings and require the specialist tools to fit correctly. The wiring can also be surprisingly complicated, particularly if the original fitting was not installed properly and needs correcting. An experienced electrician will have the tools, skill and knowledge to adapt to any issues that arise and will be able to complete the task with minimum fuss and disruption. An inexperienced person may end up causing more harm and could leave your electrical system in a dangerous state. Using a qualified and registered electrician to install a light fitting means that the work will be of the highest quality, safe and insured.
Choosing Replacement light fittings💡
Another benefit of using an electrician to replace your light fittings is that you will gain from their experience and qualified advice. The lighting in our Bradford homes is essential for modern living and good lighting can make all the difference between a room that is comfortable and cosy and one that is cold and uninviting. Choosing the right lighting, whether that be style of fitting, colour or strength of the bulb, and actual placement of the light fitting, makes a big difference to a room. As an experienced electrician, I am always happy to give advice to my customers when they want to replace their lighting. I can explain how colour temperature works, why lighting is most effective when combined on multiple levels and what the difference is between general and task lighting. If we decide the light fitting you have chosen would work better in a slightly different position in your room, that is something I can change for you quite simply, expanding your options.
