A lighting retrofit is an upgrade to your light fixtures or lamps, increasing energy efficiency. Energy savings often offset the cost of these projects over time.

4 Signs You Need Lighting Repair Services

Flickering Lights

When switch contacts within the fixture are going out, you’ll hear a crackling sound with the flickers. Bulbs that go in and out may have loose wiring anywhere from the switch to the circuit breaker panel. Another possibility is a problem with the socket itself where the light bulb sits.

Damaged Cords

Damaged cords can lead to electrical shock or even fire if not handled promptly. Likewise, exposed wiring is never safe, and if sections of insulation are missing or wiring appears frayed, do not use your fixture until fixed.

Frequent Burnouts

When bulbs burn out prematurely, there are a few places to check for lighting repairs. The first is loose wiring that may be sending power surges into the fixture and burning out the bulb. Sometimes an insufficient current is a reason, originating from incompatible bulbs and lamps, or the bulb is screwed in too tight.

Out-of-Control Electrical Bills

Do you have high electric bills? Calling in an electrician or expert handyman service can help you assess your home’s energy efficiency. In addition, such professionals will be able to recommend upgrades and replacement lighting products to help get your electricity bills in line.

4 Signs You Need Lighting Repair Services

Burning Smell from Breaker Box

As with anything electrical, a burning smell is never a good sign. However, it can signify major and dangerous issues with the breaker box and your electrical system. If you smell burning from your breaker box, call an “electrician near me” from a trusted contractor to ensure a safe and quick inspection. A burning smell from the breaker box could signify melted wires.

Home Is More Than 20 Years Old

While having an older home may not necessitate an electrical panel upgrade if you have improved your current device, it is still good to have an electrician do an inspection. These inspections ensure your electrical system is up to code and reveal what (if any) improvements need to be made, especially if you are considering a remodel or new appliance installation.

Faulty Light Switch

Fuse boxes are in most older houses. If your home has a fuse box, it is time to reach out to a licensed and certified electrician to help you with an electrical panel replacement. You want to keep your home up to code, and there is no fuse box in any house in the state that complies with minimum standards.

Breakers Trip Repeatedly

Breakers can trip for many reasons一problems with your home’s electrical panel, faulty wiring, or a bad breaker. Once all simple fixes are run through, especially if you notice burn marks or rust on the breaker, it is likely time for an electrical panel replacement.
