Why does a consumer unit require servicing? Best left alone in my experience

Do you not just change ordinary bulbs to LED bulbs in the lounge

Because the switches were playing up. Sometimes working as they should and sometimes not. It's 20 years old. I wasn't sure if it should be replaced but the sparks says it's OK.

Yes. But strip out all the old starters and bulb supports.

Duly noted.

And I haven't climbed a stepladder in years.*

I could have replaced the light switches myself as I was about to do when I discovered the breakers were not breaking. Get him to do the lot while he's here.

* Unless I have a wall or some other stable unit to hold on to.

As I suspected..fluorescent lights. Requires more than just a simple bulb change.

I understand that you may buy LED circular bulbs (similar to the fluorescents) but I prefer the flat ones.

Electricians need to be careful opening the electrical gangbox. :)


Where was that?. The box is a sensor array receiver. If that is an Automatic weather station. Its a disgrace and I am not talking about the snake taking up residence.
Campbell scientific would be appalled. It is probably a process control unit measuring low accuracy temperatures up to 25 of.
