Is it worth switching to LED lights and fittings?

THERE ARE COMPELLING REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD CHANGE OVER TO LED LIGHTING LED Lighting has transformed the Lighting Industry. It is the essential “game-changer” because it delivers better quality, lower energy consumption, and longer life than the previous options in lighting. There are compelling reasons you should have changed over to LED lighting years ago. Do so now, its never too late to make a smart decision! Make sure you leave it up to professional electricians and contractors who can handle the job safely. Here are the main reasons you need to change to LED Lighting ASAP! LONG LIFE Typically 50 to 100 times more hours than then incandescent lamps. It’s tough to beat that. The up-front investment is an easy decision. DURABLE & TOUGH Fragile parts of old lighting are improved upon with most LED lighting products. Glass has been replaced with tough plastics to give the lamps themselves more protection. DIRECTED EFFICIENT LIGHTING Not only are LED lights more efficient than other lighting options, you can point them in specific directions to increase efficiency even more. You can also dim most LED lights, with a compatible dimmer, increasing your savings, even more, when full light is not necessary. SHORT & LONG TERM ENERGY BILL SAVINGS Short term savings will be seen on your first energy bill after you have made the switch to LED lights. Your lighting portion of your bill should decrease by at least 50% immediately. Long-term savings will be when you get those savings month after month for the extended lifespan of your new LED lights. MAINTENANCE FREE LIGHTS LED lights are made to work well and never need maintenance. Once they are installed, they are mostly hassle-free, requiring little to no routine maintenance. The majority of LED lights are backed by great warranties in case of any problems as well. IT’S OK TO TURN THEM ON & OFF OFTEN Turning lights on and off can shorten their lifespan, but not with LED lights. Turn them on and off as often as you would like without consequences. WORKS IN HOT AND COLD Durable and tough, LED lights work in colder and warmer temperatures than the competition. REDUCING YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT Save energy, save money, & save the planet. LED lights are low in Co2 emissions, which is a good thing. If you want to make the upgrade to LED Lighting in your home or business, contact MB Electrical today.

does your house need rewiring

Does my property need a Re-Wire, Rewiring?


There are no set guidelines as to when a property should be rewired. Just because your wiring’s old, it doesn’t mean it’s unsafe. Many factors can affect the wear and tear of your electrical installation, including the materials used and how your property has been used. We would advise that a periodic inspection is carried out on owner-occupied properties at least every 10 years and every five years in rented accommodation. The test will certify whether the electrics in a property are safe and tell you if anything needs upgrading. You should carry out regular checks around the house on the condition of your cables, switches, sockets and other accessories. If you notice anything unusual - for example, burn marks on plugs and sockets, sounds of ‘arcing’ (buzzing or crackling), fuses blowing or circuit-breakers tripping - get a registered electrician to check your electrics as soon as possible. MB Electrical offer a complete rewiring service, including full or part re-wires
