Bulbs burning out at a high rate
Light bulbs burning out at a high rate are a common problem in many businesses and homes today. If the problem is with just one fixture of your commercial facility or home, it may be because you are using the wrong type of bulb for that particular application.
Otherwise, you can always call a professional for help.
Inconsistencies in brightness or popping bulbs
A bad connection in the circuit or incorrect installation of the wiring can cause inconsistencies in the brightness of your light bulbs. This is why some may be dim, while others may be extra bright.
Even bulbs popping when you turn on the light every time signal a problem within your electrical wiring. This can damage lighting and other electrical equipment. Thus, you must immediately call a professional electrician for help.
The main aim of every lighting fixture is to offer a clear vision for the residents, employees, or visitors. So, improperly placed lighting or even too much lighting in a particular area can make it extremely difficult for people to see.
