Electrical Lighting FAQs

If you have any questions about lighting repairs, additions, or replacements, please give our friendly specialists a call. Here are some common questions our customers ask.

Why do my lights flicker?

There are several reasons why your lights at home may flicker or have a “candle” effect. This can result from loose connections, worn-out circuit breakers, or faulty light bulbs. Make sure the light is screwed in snugly. The next step is replacing the light bulb; try using a different brand.

If your light continues to flicker, it’s probably time for our electricians to take a look.

Yes! Adding more light fixtures to a room may require additional wiring, but it can almost always be done. An electrician can determine if there is enough amperage in your lighting circuit to support more fixtures or if more power is necessary.

It’s also essential to know what maximum voltage your new, and old, lights can handle. If the voltage is too much, the bulb will burn out or you may get a short circuit.

This is usually something that can be done, but it’s not the most simple procedure if you lack electrical experience. After turning off the power, your original light fixture and electrical box will need to be removed. A larger hole may need to be cut around the existing wiring connections.

The can fixture (or pot light) is then wired to the circuit and placed in the ceiling. Our electricians at 4-Star can evaluate your ceiling lights and recommend recessed lighting locations and equipment.

If a light isn’t turning on at all, there are some initial checks you can complete before calling an electrician.

  1. Make sure the bulb is screwed in and the filament in the bulb remains intact.
  2. Make sure the switch is turned ON.
  3. Make sure your circuit breaker is in the ON position.

If all these things check out and your light still won’t turn on, some expert investigation is needed to determine the issue. Keep the light off, and call 4-Star Electric for some help.
