Day 328 – Terrifying electrics

Look, I don’t want to go too much into this right now, but the electrics around this place have got me rather concerned. Some of the light fittings seem to have come from the 1950s (note that the house was built in the early 80s, although that doesn’t preclude some of the light fittings being from the 1950s, I suppose). Some of the wiring also appears to have come from that time.

Or earlier.

The previous occupants also had a thing for downlighters. Each of them with a 50W bulb in.
And there are so many of them! Like literally 60-odd in the whole property.
I’ve been doing some rudimentary calculations, and I’ve worked out that we simply can’t afford that sort of electricity bill. And so the long, slow, ‘spensive process of replacing them all with sensible LEDs begins now. Well, not now. It’s half past nine at night. So “just now”.

Yeah. Pretty much later. (But not later tonight.)


StudyWatch: Still peach.
