Why are the lights failing

damaged light fitting

Together with end of service life and basically old age and to be fair CEC did a good job specifying quality light fittings. Also after 35-40 years and 140,000-170,000 hours of running time can take its toll. Furthermore older inefficient light fittings can shorten the lifespan of the lamps/tubes.

Example of stair light problem

Unfixed light

Old tenement properties stair lights have been fixed to the thick plaster walls via short fixing screws. Additionally if the lights are knocked  via a contractor or delivery firm this can put strain on the wiring causing the circuits to trip. AEW will refix these free of charge on a relamp or a LED conversion

Missing or broken shades

No shade

Some shades get broken due to poor fixing or wear and tear. Missing shades can be down to individuals probably trying to remove them then realising changing the tubes is not an easy task AEW will replace broken or missing shades free of charge during a relamp.
