Are you looking for a local and reliable electrician in the Greater Manchester, Merseyside, Cheshire and Lancashire area?
Downlights are a great alternative to pendant light fittings, when fitted correctly they make a great feature to any room.
You can fit them in your kitchen, lounge, dining room or bathrooms, when fitting them in wet rooms its advised to use fittings that are IP rated to IP65 as they protect against water ingress.
They come in many different colours and sizes, lamp types are halogen or LED.
LED (light-emitting diode) are a little more expensive than a halogen but you will save on electricity with LED so, in the long run, you will save money. The standard size is around 75mm in diameter but can range from 10mm to 300mm and the 4 main colours are brushed chrome, polished chrome, white and gold.
There are 3 main lamp colours and they are cool white, warm white and daylight. On the colour temperature chart for cool white is (2700K – 3000K), warm white (3500K – 4100K), and daylight (5000K – 6500K).
When installing downlights you should opt for the fire rated type. Fire rated downlights are designed to prevent and minimise fire from spreading, when installed they are recessed in the ceiling.
To recess the fitting you have to cut a hole out in the plasterboard so the ceiling then loses its integrity so to restore the integrity it is better to install fire rated downlights as they are designed to deter fire for longer periods.
Kevin, Lee and their team did a full re wire of our house in August 2015. Their team of 5 were very efficient and complete the job within 3 days. Their work was of a high standard and the price was very reasonable. All of the team were polite and helpful, fully explained what they would do and how they would do it with as minimal disruption to us as a family as possible! We would highly recommend their team!Jennie, Stretford
While browsing the web looking for a company to rewire our three bedroom semi with conservatory, I came across K&L Electrical (electrician2hire), run by Kevin and Lee. The site claims a full rewire for a three bedroom semi in 3 to 4 days (unoccupied). I arranged for a quote and they came to Denton in Manchester within 2 days (Friday afternoon 23 August). I had the quote from Lee (which was a lot less than I was expecting) by Thursday 29 August. Lee contacted me on 2 September and said they could start the job on Tuesday 10 September. As good as their word the job was completed in 4 days and that was with us still occupying the property! Having your house rewired whilst living in it is not something you'd volunteer for but the team made the job bearable. Then team did a great job cleaning up every day and they was very pleasant and friendly. We would recommend this company to anyone.Simon Marsden, Denton
K & L worked on my property in December 2012 so i could make it safe to rent out, and again on a heating problem in February 2013. Lee and Kev were both friendly and helpful, they gave full explanations of everything they were doing in a way the lay person could understand. I would wholeheartedly recommend K&L to anyone – they were professional and considerate, taking good care of the property and they worked long and hard to ensure that the project completed on time. They also gave recommendations of good suppliers and provided clear billing information that demonstrated value for money. I will always use them now for any future projects. Thanks Lee and Kev for providing fantastic service.Gilli Bruce, Warrington
Me and my wife contacted lee, regarding doing some electrical work prior to our fitted kitchen being installed, he arrived on time, he and his team we very clean, tidy, and worked alongside other tradesmen to complete our dream kitchen. Any questions we asked were answered and explained fully, we found him very approachable, friendly, and most importantly, he quoted a very good price, and stuck to that price. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone considering any kind of electrical work in their homes. And we will definitely be using them again in the future. Great job guys.Stephen And Stephanie, Wigan
