Do Your Light Bulbs Frequently Burn Out?

Don’t you wish the lightbulbs at your home could practically burn forever?  On an average usage of eight hours a day, a bulb is expected to last for around four months. Different kind of light bulbs have varying lifespans, and if you feel that your recently replaced bulb is showing signs of burning out, there has to be a reason behind it!

Are you facing major problems regarding your light bulbs fusing now and then?

Don’t worry because it might be a fixable problem. Handling electricity always need protection hence make sure you don’t touch bulbs with wet hands or put your finger inside the bulb fixture while the breaker is still on.

When screwing the bulb in its fixture make sure it’s not too loose to flicker due to loss of contact and neither is it too tight as the brass tab inside the light socket can get damaged.

It is often not evident, but the bulbs usually fuse/burn due to overheating. It may be because of using a bulb with higher voltage, and so it burns out sooner than expected. Another reason for overheating may be the prolonged use of bulbs every day.

If you still face this issue, then consider switching to a reputable brand. Make your home shine brighter with these tips!

Karen, East Peckham

My external security lights had failed and because they were over 20 years old, several electricians felt unable to help me. I then asked Karen from Bright Sparks to get involved. She promptly surveyed the problem, gave me a competitive quote and as soon as I accepted it, gave me a firm date for the work to be undertaken. Her electricians arrived on the due date, were very friendly and tidy and worked in difficult places without problem. I definitely intend to use Bright Sparks again.
