What Could Be Wrong?
Homeowners often don’t know just how complicated their indoor lighting—and for that matter home electrical system—might be. Every single home relies on electricity in some manner, and as technology develops and gets more convenient, older electrical systems become more outdated. We come across electrical systems all the time that should have been upgraded a decade ago, but that are still chugging along with subpar results.
To put it plainly, your indoor lighting could be hooked up to an ancient electrical system that’s going to cause issues. No matter how many bulbs you buy or how many times you flick the lights on or off, you’re going to be paying for inefficiency, burnt bulbs, and repairs that might not get at the heart of the problem.
Watch for the Signs of an Old Lighting System
If you’re suffering from an aging electrical system that’s in charge of turning on your lights, pay attention to see if yours could use upgrading:
- Dim lighting that should be brighter. Lights are meant to keep your house well-lit. If you’re having trouble seeing even with the lights on, then it’s time to upgrade your indoor lighting.
- Constantly burning out bulbs. Bulbs are meant to last longer than a few months. Perhaps you need new, LED lights or fluorescent bulbs that could cust energy costs down and last longer.
- Lights that take a second or longer to turn on. When you flip a switch, lights should turn on. There shouldn’t be any exceptions to this rule!
- High energy costs. Older light bulbs that are hooked up to older electrical systems tend to consume more energy than they rightfully should.
- Poor switch configuration. Everyone has that one room in their home where two switches go to the same light. You probably end up cursing under your breath when you flip one of them, knowing that you’ve got to flip the other one this time in order to turn the lights off. We can fix that.
