Although it is the session to party, sometimes you might feel like some down time. Unfortunately, even if you were enjoying the party lifestyle your faulty lights provide it can lead to a broken connection which would put you in the dark.
What is causing the flicker? There are three main reasons why you home has turned into a disco:
- A common reason for lights flickering is due to the fact that they are not screwed in properly. The solution is to turn off the lights and gently screw it into its socket. If it is still flickering, the light bulb may be defective and should be replaced.
- Faulty switch connection. Over time it is normal for the switch of the fixture will wear out. You can tell if you have a faulty switch by jiggling it gently to see if this causes a flicker. If the switch is faulty it will need to be replaced. Call your electrician for help.
- Voltage Fluctuation. You may notice that when you turn on an appliance with a high wattage connected to the same branch circuit as your lights, the lights start to flicker. This is a result of a more serious electrical problem. Not only could it be causing a flicker but also may make your lights appear too bright or dim which causes bulbs to burn out quicker. An electrician is required immediately.
