Any electricians here on fluther? My house has a quirk that seems to be getting worse.
Incandescent light bulbs are blowing on more than one circuit. I change a light bulb and then it blows after a short time. Some light fittings after only 2 months. Sometimes there an be a sudden slew that blow in the same week. Why am I changing so many light bulbs? I want to switch over to the more expensive power savers, but I don’t want to buy a bunch of $20 bulbs and then have my house wiring destroy them. My brother (who lives no where near me so can’t really help) thinks that it may be some wiring problem in my fuse box. I literally have NO money to call an electrician, so is this something I can look at and fix myself?
