Lighting Repair or Replacement South West London


When lighting repair or replacement is required

Lights flickering or not working at all? There are a number of reasons why your lighting installation might fail or work only intermittently and one of them is cable failure. Lighting cables run under the upper level floorboards and loft areas of a domestic property, down the inside of walls and connect to switches and light fittings. That's a lot of cable and if it's more than 25 years old, chances are it's time to consider a partial rewire. A partial rewire means just replacing the lighting cables and not those running to the wall sockets. When lights are continually dim, flickering or not working, a rewire of the lighting system usually resolves the problem.

Light switches and bulb holder repair and replacement

If the lighting cables are in good condition then any problem with lighting is likely to be an isolated case. The wiring to ceiling lights or wall light fittings can become loose and this can cause flickering or buzzing, especially in the switch area. Bulb holders can get very hot when lights have been on for any length of time, and eventually this can make the outer casing very brittle. If a bulb does not fit properly inside a bulb holder or fitting then a replacement will be necessary. Very often, problems with lighting can be the wall switch, especially if it is a dimmer switch. General wear will eventually cause the switch to malfunction or stop working altogether. The switch itself cannot be repaired and a replacement will be necessary.

What types of lighting can be repaired, replaced or installed?

Hamilton Group electrical engineers can repair and replace any type of lighting system including general residential lighting (ambient), security lighting, incandescent lighting, accent lighting, fluorescent lighting, task lighting and all exterior lighting around the house, garden and out-buildings. New lighting systems can be installed in and around a property, and existing lighting can often be extended wherever it is needed. All lighting must be correctly installed and fused so that it complies with relevant standards. In the UK this standard is BS 7671:2008, 'Requirements for electrical installations' (The IEE Wiring Regulations 17th Edition). For lighting design, installation, inspection, testing, verification and certification, BS 7671 covers all necessary requirements.
