Free Sony Soundbar with selected Sony 4K HDR TVs

Free Sony Soundbar with Selected Sony 4K HDR TVs

An incredible offer from Sony to begin October. Get a Sony soundbar worth £250 completely FREE when you purchase any qualifying Sony 4K HDR TV at Chapmans!

Soundbars are generally long and thin and sit on your television stand in front of the TV. A soundbar is a convenient and non-intrusive way to greatly enhance the sound available from your TV.

The Sony HT-CT390 is a 2.1 channel Soundbar with bluetooth capability and comes absolutely FREE with selected Sony 4K HDR televisions. With 300 Watt total power output this is sure to do that! Drivers at each end of your sound bar deliver a clear mid and high range, while a wireless subwoofer fills in the rumbling lows. The S-Force virtual surround sound technology puts you right at the heart of the movies you love by emulating cinema style surround sound.

If you prefer something bigger though, you can forego this model and choose a 50% saving on several other soundbars instead. Ask in-store for more details, we’ll be glad to guide you through all the options.

You’ve maybe heard HDR being mentioned but not yet aware of what it means or what it does. It stands for High Dynamic Range, a confusing term for what is really a piece of magic. It is often used when referring to photography, you’ve maybe seen that option on your camera or smartphone. HDR or high dynamic range produces images which contain a greater range of colours. It can enhance light areas and deepen dark ones without washing out or fudging the colours in those areas.

HDR TVs offer this same magic, but for moving images! The difference it makes is astonishing and has to be seen with your own eyes to truly appreciate. Why not come and see our range of Sony 4K HDR TVs in store today. The technology is steadily becoming absorbed into the mainstream, with HDR content already available. Sony has been at the forefront of this evolution, combining the new 4K TV standard with HDR with staggering results.

If you’ve always wondered what the fuss is with 4K, it’s another of those things you really need to see for yourself. The difference it makes is staggering and 4K content is readily available.

You’ll sometimes hear 4K referred to as UltraHD. Like it’s predecessor, HD, it dramatically increases the image resolution – by a factor of 4. Whereas High Definition was roughly equivalent to 4 Standard Definition pictures, 4K UltraHD is roughly equivalent to 4 High Definition pictures – or an incredible 16 times Standard Definition.

Do you deserve it? Yes you do! We’ve only just had HD though, right? That was actually over 10 years ago now with BBC HD channel first airing way back in 2006, although they still don’t do local news in HD..

Chapmans Electrical - Family Business Awards Finalists 2016It’s with great pride that we can officially announce that Chapmans Electrical are finalists in not just one, but two of the top categories in the Family Business Awards 2016!

The Family Business Awards is a non profit initiative. This is the seventh year they have been held. Thanks to the amazing generosity of sponsors, the awards raise a huge amount of money for charity whilst recognising the many achievements of family business from right across the Midlands.

The official Family Business Awards Finalist documents arrived this week and we’re absolutely thrilled. Last year we won the award for Service Excellence, recognising our ongoing commitment to great customer service, and reached the finals in the Retail Excellence category.

This year we’re in two of the most prized and most competitive categories.

Best Small Family Business – sponsored by Bedrock Tax
Corporate Social Responsibility – sponsored by Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust

The selection process is quite involved, with initial entry, shortlisting and choosing finalists, then interviews with the judges and sometimes a site visit too. Wish us luck!

Make a note of November the 17th in your diary. It is the awards ceremony and dinner, when we join the other finalists at a glittering, glamorous night where we find out who won!

The award for Best Small Family Business looks in depth at the structure and nature of the business itself. It takes into account how family values and family members have guided the development of the business, the board and ownership structure and how decisions are made. Other important factors include personal development, innovation, overcoming adversity and commitment to the community.

The Corporate Social Responsibility award recognises family businesses that are committed to making a difference through their activities. Those who’s values have a positive impact on their people, their community and the environment.

Chapmans has always played an active part in our local community. It’s something we truly believe in.  We’ve been a part of it for more than 90 years now, having been established as an electrical contractor by Ewart Chapman and family members back in 1925 – when industrial use of electricity was still in it’s infancy and domestic use quite rare. We’re proud of our Black Country heritage, sponsor local sports teams and social events and have many charitable interests. We’re active in relevant industry bodies too and members of the Black Country Chamber of Commerce. Our community is very important to us and as family and friends we overcome adversity together.

Have you thought about LED Lighting?

Energy saving LED Lighting at Chapmans

Have you thought about LED Lighting? You need to. Here’s why..

LED lighting has been around for a number of years now and the technology has matured. LED lights are now mainstream and here to stay.

Lighting is often taken for granted. Most people probably haven’t thought about what type of lights they have or indeed why that is. Recent legislative changes are set to bring lighting out of the darkness and on to centre stage. As a technological leader, Chapmans is ahead of the game and poised to guide you through the labyrinth.

You’ve probably heard that LED lighting is very energy efficient. That means it typically uses less electricity to produce a set level of light output than other types of lighting. An LED light will have a much lower Wattage specified than you are perhaps used to seeing with less energy efficient varieties. If you’re translating existing wattage’s to LED equivalents it can be difficult to know what will be suitable and where to begin.

LED lighting typically far outlasts less energy efficient alternatives too, meaning it should make savings in the long term as well as the short.

There have been recent changes in legislation which are designed to phase out old inefficient forms of lighting. Specifically Halogen lights. A great invention and very widely used, their time has come – in the same way as it did for old fashioned filament bulbs a few years ago.

Halogen is to be phased out, beginning with some varieties as early as September this year, but the majority will be in 2018. It is anticipated that this will make replacing them like-for-like increasingly difficult, which could cause frustration later and possible danger & downtime if it leaves you in the dark.

This phasing out will begin with mains voltage directional halogen lamps, Directional Halogen Lightwhich will start disappearing next month. Essentially spot lamps, usually with a parabolic reflector, found everywhere from shop fittings to bathroom ceilings. Often designated PAR16 or GU10.

Because of this we are expecting a high demand for equivalent replacements with LED lighting over the coming months and the next few years as other halogen formats come under the knife.. It pays to be prepared and to make plans now.

LED lighting is available in many formats and ratings, virtually everything now has a suitable LED equivalent, from high output flood lighting to cosy and dimmable domestic lighting. Unlike halogen, LED lights are also available in a range of colours, including soft warm or cold hard white.

You may decide these changes herald time for a long overdue lighting scheme replacement more suited to your needs. Chapmans was established way back in 1925, when gas lighting was slowly being replaced with electrical lights. We’ve seen technology change over the years and been a part of it. We are here to help and can design, specify and install LED lighting at any scale.

Contact us today, or visit our showroom, to find out how these changes are likely to affect you, talk things through and plan a solution which will suit both your lighting requirements and your budget.
