Changing a light bulb for most of us is one of the simplest property maintenance jobs out there. Or more correctly, it USED TO BE. Nowadays there are hundreds of different types and styles; choosing the wrong one could be expensive, or even dangerous. What about access? Is the bulb high up; is it difficult to access like a cooker hood, oven or fridge light, concealed lighting, outside lighting? All things to consider, and something you might not want to do, especially if you’re less than 100% fit and able. Not many folk would call an electrician on the grounds of expense or not wanting to ‘feel stupid’ but there’s no need. You’ll find plenty of people on Potless from handymen to ordinary householders only too happy to swap those bulbs for you. Shine a light on property problem fixers here.
