Domestic Lighting Solutions
Having the right lighting in your home can help improve its ambience and aesthetic appeal, while also making it more secure. Whether you’re looking to upgrade the lights in your house, save on energy costs or install new lighting for an extension, Mr. Electric can provide the expert assistance you need. Our electricians are highly trained in all aspects of home lighting design and installation, and always ensure that any fittings are carried out in accordance with the relevant safety regulations.
We are also available 24/7 for electrical emergencies, which means we can rapidly address any hazards that may occur as a result of a blown light bulb. 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.

I sadly cannot give one star. Lee Ives the managing director came out because someone else was on a job. He failed to recognise the make of Fuse Box so took a photo and sent to someone else. (It took me 2 mins to Google it and find the same information). I suggested it could be a faulty RCD (rccb) he suggested it could be a blown bulb. As he didn't have a spare RCD to add he went to move over a circuit and when he disconnected the hot tub the power worked again. He then left the hot tub disconnected and switched everything back on. He suggested we get a hot tub engineer as he doesn't fix them. He then charged us 75 for a total of 25min "work". The next day the same problem occurred... After some googling I tapped the rccb with a screw driver and it started working again. (the springs inside seize up sometimes). Wanting our clearly non faulty hot tub connecting and a new RCD (rccb) fitted we contacted mr.electric (Lee) said he would send someone the next day. He said a new RCD would be about 60. (I brought one from screwfix for 24). The electrician (not Lee) came and went to add the RCD that Lee had sent him with... It didn't FIT. (Lee should have googled it). Luckily the RCD I brought did fit. The electrician then connected this and reconnected the hot tub. Everything was now working. Lee wanted an additional 50. So in total for less than 1hours work, no parts (as we provided this), photography of the fuse box and some googling!! Lee wanted to charge 125. Unhappy we spoke to him on the phone. He told us it was a call out charge despite his website saying "no call out charge". He told us they came out twice.... We pointed out he clearly didn't know what he was doing. We did pay as the young electrician he sent on day 2 was competent and its not his fault. We will not be using them again and recommend others do not.

Very Good service, excellent
Richard and Alex (East Anglia) were super helpful in the process leading up to the work, helping plan what we needed and how we could work around some of the unusual materials we're using in our renovation. During the job they were tidy and friendly. We will definitely be using them again.
