Torrevieja Electricians

Fans and lights are just two of the many home electrical items that can be installed, removed or repaired by Torrevieja Electricians. We can also provide this service for most commercial properties. Aside from interior and exterior light fittings, we can install and repair security lighting systems, garden lights and swimming pool lights. The same applies with ceiling fans and, although you wouldn’t install a fan in your garden, we can fit them in outdoor terraces, sheds and summer houses. We also install various extractor fans for kitchens and bathrooms.

Fitting Fans and Lights

We all know the cost of purchasing, installing and above all, running an air conditioning unit. Pedestal and ceiling fans provide a cost efficient alternative and a welcoming cool breeze in the Spanish summers. However, those lucky enough to have both will often still enjoy the comfort and chill of their air conditioning during the scorching summer months of July and August. I’m sure nobody needs the assistance of an electrician to switch on their pedestal fan, but it is recommended to use a qualified electrician when it comes to fitting and wiring a ceiling fan. The same can be said with replacing a light bulb, nobody needs an electrician to do it. Actually installing and wiring any type of light though, should be left to the professionals.

Types Of Fans And Lights

The majority of homes in Spain use the standard four blade ceiling fan that comes in a variety of colours and has a light fitting in the centre. These can be purchased from most hardware stores (ferreterías), some of the larger ‘Chino’ shops, department stores and specialist lighting stores. This is also the case with some light fittings. However, with the vast choice and style of light fittings for all rooms, many of these can only be found in specialist lighting stores. Ikea in particular do an excellent range of light fittings for all areas of the home and garden.

Types Of Light Bulbs

With the rapid advances in lighting technology, the worldwide trend is leaning more and more to LED bulbs. These now come in all shapes and sizes and can reduce energy bills by as much as 90%. Further to that, they last for ages and in some cases as long as 20 years! When buying LED bulbs, make sure you get the right ones. CFL bulbs (Compact Fluorescent) that have that weird curly shape are not the same and produce a far weaker level of brightness. When it comes to areas of the home that receive a lot of moisture such as the bathroom or outdoor lighting, make sure they have the correct IP (Ingress Protection) to keep out the wet.
