According to research, one in 20 British people do not know how to change on light bulb.
The above figure equates to 1.95 million people. That’s nearly 2 million people in Britain that cannot change a light bulb.
One in 20 homeowners admit they are too embarrassed to call out a trades person to deal with a problem they felt was something they should be able to do themselves.
Lightbulbs Direct is here to help:
First: turn the power off
Then: allow the light bulb to cool for a while
Then: remove the light bulb by either:
For a Bayonet Mount grab the light bulb, push it up gently and turn it anticlockwise until it comes out the socket
For a Screw Fitting you literally unscrew it, anticlockwise until it comes out the socket
Then: insert the new light bulb into the socket and turn it clockwise until it won’t twist anymore.
