There are a variety of different lighting types located throughout the property as follows:

  • • The hallway, bathroom, kitchen and living area are fitted with spotlights.
  • • The bedrooms are fitted with pendant light fittings.
  • • The storage cupboards are fitted with batten light fittings.
  • There are downlights installed underneath the kitchen wall units.


Please Note: Light bulbs/lamps are not covered under the warranty and it is the responsibility of the occupier to carry out or arrange replacements when necessary, with the exception of spotlights & downlights. The spotlights & downlights installed within the property are fixed units and are covered under the warranty.

When carrying out light bulb/lamp replacements, please ensure that the main light switch is turned off, the switches in the consumer unit (fuse board) are in the off position and that the faulty light bulb/lamp has cooled down before you attempt to change it.

Please see the below troubleshooting video for further information and guidance:

Electric Panel Heaters

The property is fitted with wall mounted electric panel heaters. The heaters have a control panel which allows you to programme the heating to your specific requirements.

Please remember to turn on the spur switch which is located next to each individual heater. If there is no electricity to the heaters, then please check that the RCD has not tripped in the consumer unit (fuse board).

Please see the below PDF copy of the manual for further information:

Heated Towel Rail

The bathroom and en-suite bathroom (if applicable) are fitted with ladder chrome heated towel rails.

Please remember to turn on the spur switch for the towel rail which is located just outside of the bathroom. If there is no electricity to the towel rail, then please check that the RCD has not tripped in the consumer unit (fuse board).

Consumer Unit (Fuse Board)

The consumer unit (fuse board) is located within the storage cupboard of the property. The consumer units are fitted with British Standard RCD (circuit breaker/cut out) for safety and the RCD will trip if there is a problem with the circuit. This is a safety feature which protects you from electrocution.

If something is tripping out the electrics on the consumer unit (fuse board) it is the occupier’s responsibility to identify where the issue lies by unplugging all electrical items, resetting the switches and plugging the electrical items back in one by one. Common issues which will trip the electrics within a property are things such as: light bulbs blowing and problems with electrical equipment i.e. toasters, kettles, irons, TV’s and laptops.

Fused Spur Sockets

The kitchen appliances are wired to a fused spur on the wall in the kitchen area. Please ensure that the spur is switched on for the kitchen appliances to operate.

Located within the hallway of some properties is an additional fused spur socket, should the occupier wish to install additional heating in the future. Please ensure permission is granted from the owner prior to installing any appliance to this fused spur socket within the property.

Please Note: It is the occupier’s responsibility to replace the fuse before reporting a fault with the product.

Please see the below troubleshooting video for further information and guidance on how to replace fuses:
