Alternatively, we can arrange to replace a bulb or add a new light fitting at a time of your convenience, should you not require urgent assistance. All work will be completed safely and with minimal disruption to your home.
Finding the Best Lighting for Your Home
Choosing the right type of bulb is a crucial part of upgrading or installing new lights in your home. There are three types of light bulb available on the market today: halogen, CFL and LED.
Halogen bulbs are the cheapest light bulbs on the market, and the closest you can get to incandescent bulbs, which were recently phased out in favour of more energy-efficient products. This type of light bulb can typically last for around 2,000 hours – roughly two years, based on an average usage of three hours per day.
Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs)
CFLs can typically last up to 10,000 hours – five times longer than a halogen bulb – and consume 80% less energy than a traditional incandescent bulb. They can be used in the same way as halogens and don’t tend to require a different fitting. CFLs are widely available in a variety of temperatures, sizes and colours.
LED lights are the most energy-efficient option for homeowners, boasting an average lifespan of 25,000 hours (25 years) and consuming 50-90% less energy than all other types of light bulb. A single LED bulb is more expensive to buy than a CFL or halogen bulb, but its increased energy efficiency and lifespan means it will save you more money over time.

Was answered straight away by call centre, but nothing beyond that
Turned up on time, explained problem to me - fixed problem with no mess - very polite and installed complete faith in workmen's competence.
Tile Hill, Coventry
I would like to offer my thanks & appreciation for the very speedy way in which my house was completely rewired last week after a circuit breakdown on Friday 5th October. Russell Appleton the team leader was a 'Star' & organised the job efficiently and created as little mess as possible. He liaised with me at all stages and offered sensible alternatives when things proved difficult. He and his main "Mate" Martin worked together very efficiently; leaving us with power available at the end of each day & a safe environment for the night, Our thanks to call concerned for a job well done & I hope I don’t need your services for a long time
I rang Mr Electric as an emergency call. My mother was coming out of hospital that very day and we discovered she had no lights working downstairs in her home. The lady I spoke to was very professional and helpful, she arranged for an electrician to come out that afternoon. A nice young lad named Mark rang me to advise he was on his way and would be with us in 15 minutes. He turned up on time and was able to resolve the issue and offer some good advice. I can’t tell you how grateful we were, it was essential to get moms lights on, otherwise she may have had to go back into hospital. Thank you so much. We will definitely use Mr Electric again.
Connected my new oven in. And arrived on time Even wore shoe covers
Early morning electrical problem (no shower or lights) 1 phone call,and the office confirmed early afternoon visit. The electrician(Mark) phoned to confirm he was on his way, he found and fixed the problem in no time First class service (even if a little pricey for a pensioner).
Strangely enough they did as promised answered the phone, called on the way to our appointment, wore overshoes and got the quote back on time. Luke and Stuart carried out the installation of our car chargers even sorting the OLEV funding. Would highly recommend
I have used Mr Electric on numerous occasions both at home and work. We have never been let down by them yet top rate service levels from start to finish.
I called another company as I had lost power to my sockets. After an hour they found a fault and informed me I really needed a rewire quoting £4500.00 plus vat. I then called Mr Electric and asked for a rewire quote. Luke asked a few questions and said he can not see why I need a rewire. He then carried out a couple of tests and confirmed my wiring was ok. My board tough showed signs of burn caused by a loose contact and was 12 years old so we changed that. Luke could of easily quoted £4k and rewired my house. Thank you for your honesty and saving me over £4,000
