Mornin All,
I have noted comments on this forum regarding the positioning of new consumer units above w.c. bowls in the downstairs w.c. This makes access for testing etc. difficult. I was in an old refurbished building yesterday that is now self contained flats. This former Victorian hotel has very high ceilings. The consumer units are up at ceiling level, and I had to stand on a pair of 7 tread steps to reach one. Very inconvenient for the tenants as most will not possess a pair of steps if the main switch R.C.D. trips off.

Also there are many high level recessed L.E.D. lights. Years ago a tenant could easily replace an old tungsten light bulb if it blew. Nowadays even if the ceilings are low, it is a bit more challenging to replace a faulty recessed L.E.D. GU10 lamp. Normally the house owner has to do it themselves or employ somebody to do it. Many tenants are not practically minded.

Has modern technology really made things better. It seems that in many cases it has increased costs and made things more difficult..


New here?
