Changing light bulbs is a highly charged business

Can we have the white rat experiments and quantity surveyor jokes now?

I am not miffed with Louis Hellman peddling his EH (Electric Heritage? ) joke - I know he has empathy with the heritage conservation business (Letters, AJ8.1.01). But the strained allusion is wearing thin.

Firstly, there aren't enough of us to offer this level of service (though we do have some excellent electrical engineers on the staff ). Secondly, we do save your readers and their clients plenty of time, money and heartache offering constructive ways to repair and reuse existing property, fixtures and fittings.

As the trends in construction move even further towards sustainability, refurbishment, maintenance and conservation, we all need to adopt longer lasting light bulbs.

John Fidler, head of building conservation and research, English Heritage
