Whole House - Recessed Lighting Replacement

Bassingham, Lincolnshire

This house, built in the mid ‘90s, was lit throughout using brass recessed light fittings, containing R80 reflector bulbs.
As they aged, the heat made the lamp holder brittle, and break, and now some of the bulbs were hanging under the fitting, with the weight on the wires.
In addition the R80 bulbs are becoming hard to source.
We replaced 61 light fittings with satin nickel converter fittings, in this case using very efficient GU10 LED lamps, producing a wide angle warm light, using only around 3W.
An extra RCD was also fitted in the consumer unit, to ensure all lighting circuits are protected to the current regulations.
