Light Fixtures Cannot Be Switched On
There are many factors which may cause our light fixtures not to light up.
The bulb or light tube may have fused or may be faulty. The electronic starter or driver components may have malfunctioned.
There may be some problem with the electrical wiring to the light fixtures or the light switch. Or some of the electronic components or wiring has worn down due to prolong usage or aging.
Light Keeps Flickering
If your light keeps flickering on and off, it could mean the bulb’s filament is nearly gone, or probably the switch contacts are getting bad.
It could also mean that there are some loose electrical connections somewhere – the switch, the panel, the junction box or the light socket, which prevents the electricity from flowing smoothly to your light fixture.
If this blinking light problem is happening throughout your home, more often than not, the main wire connection has some issues.
Light Bulbs Burning Out Too Soon
There are various factors affecting the life span of your light bulbs.
When the light bulb of the wrong wattage is used, the attached light fixture may not be able to dissipate their heat efficiently, hence causing the light bulb to burn out faster than usual.
Or there could be some loose electrical connections in the wire circuitry or within the light socket itself. Or the light bulb may simply be of an inferior quality.
Fluorescent Bulbs & Fluorescent Tubes Replacement
Fluorescent lights are commonly used both in the home and in commercial buildings. They generate less heat and consume less energy than the incandescent bulbs, and typically last longer.
However replacing a burnt out fluorescent tube can be challenging for the laymen. If not positioned properly, it would not work. Twisting too forcefully may also break an end socket.
Since the tubes work in pairs and generally have similar lifespan, it is recommended that both tubes be replaced with brand new ones even if only one of the tubes has died. Reason being that if either of the two tubes is malfunctioning, neither would work well anyway.
Energy-Efficient LED Lights Save You Money
In fact, many households and companies are looking to replace their current old-fashion fluorescent lights to the trendier and energy-saving LED lights.
LED light bulbs combine a beautiful warm white light with an exceptionally long lifetime. LED bulbs provide immediate, significant energy savings while enhancing your home atmosphere. LED light is flicker free and has a high colorindex which ensures that objects are seen in their true, natural colours.
LED bulbs create the perfect light quality for every occasion – from romantic lighting for a warm, cozy ambience, to bright lights for lighting up special objects. They are ideal for decorative light fixtures, table lamps and recessed ceiling lighting.
