Norcroft Energy has just replaced the lights in Cawthorne Church to LED lights which will significantly reduce the churches running costs.
Norcroft carried out the rewiring of the Church. The old wiring system was failing and following an inspection and test of the circuits Norcroft recommended rewiring the whole system.
John Lees of Cawthorne Church said, “The church had last been rewired in the 1960s and rewiring was well overdue. Norcroft Energy were chosen to undertake the work because of their past experience and longstanding support of works previously carried out at the Church. Great care was taken in selecting light fittings that would be in keeping with the character of the listed building. The lighting scheme was submitted to and approved by the Diocesan Church lighting adviser.”
The main areas are now lit with decorative chandelier (imported from Italy) with individual LED lamps. The choir stalls are illuminated with LED flood lights which have been installed to offer the most effective output.
Philip Mosley, Managing Director at Norcroft Energy said, “Installing LED lighting is an easy step towards saving money on energy bills. Energy consumption is much lower and the life span of an LED surpasses the short life of an incandescent bulb. Cawthorne Church will save approximately 50 pence per hour for every hour the lights are on. That’s a significant saving per year.”
John added, “Norcroft Energy undertook the work expeditiously and fitted it in between pre-planned church services. We were breaking new ground using LED lights and fittings that were ornamental as well as functional. The final outcome is much appreciated.”
There will be a special Festival of Light service combined with the Harvest Festival on Sunday 5th October at 6:30pm.
