3 Common Lighting Problems in Every Household

Need a fast & efficient residential lighting repair? Our affordable & quick Calgary handyman services can help!

Lighting is one of the most important things to get right in your home. Efficient and well-designed lighting products can not only improve the aesthetics of your home but also yield incredible household energy savings.

However, there will inevitably be times when you will experience an electrical problem in your home and it’s important to seek professional handyman services to prevent a dangerous situation.

Installation & Lighting Product Repair/Replacement in Calgary

Whether it’s a simple home theatre lighting installation or a more serious wiring issue, our team of dedicated specialists can provide timely and safe residential lighting repair services to avoid problems such as electrocution or property damage.


Common Residential Lighting Repairs Needed in the Home

Your home is full of electrical systems - whether it’s the outdoor LED lights or computer networks and appliances. Inevitably, all homeowners will come across an electric problem that requires immediate attention.

Some of the most common problems include:

  • Flickering Lights

This simplest cause of a flickering light could be a loose bulb in the socket. But when it happens continuously, even after you’ve changed the bulb, there may be a poor wiring connection or faulty fixture.

Both these issues require the immediate attention of a handyman service, not only to diagnose the problem, but to handle the repairs safely. To determine whether it’s a more serious issue, watch out for:

  • Light bulbs that appear too bright or not bright enough
  • Bulbs that burn out too quickly
  • Issues with your refrigerator or freezer (this could indicate voltage problems)


  • Out-of-Control Electrical Bills

Are you worried about out-of-control electric bills? Calling in an electrician or expert handyman service can help you assess the energy-efficiency of your home. In addition, such professionals will be able to recommend upgrades and replacement lighting products to help get your electricity bills in line.

At FML, we often recommend residential LED lighting products due to their many cost-effective benefits.  These include:

  • High energy-efficiency
  • Long lifespan
  • Durability
  • Ability to run on a low-voltage power supply

Whether you require a home theatre installation or outdoor lighting, our residential lighting repair specialists are able to design comprehensive lighting solutions to help reduce both your lighting costs and emissions.


  • Exposed Wires

Exposed wires are a common problem associated with DIY basement renovations and other home improvement projects. But it’s not something that should be taken lightly. Exposed wires present a fire hazard and can seriously damage your home if left unprotected.

Hiring a handyman service can ensure that even the messiest batch of wires is quickly cleaned up, properly supported and covered to reduce any risk to you and your family.

  • Warm Receptacles

While it may not seem like a big deal, warm receptacles need IMMEDIATE ATTENTION. It’s important to stop plugging anything into that particular receptacle and check others in the room for heat/burn marks.

Calling a residential lighting repair company that has the knowledge and equipment to quickly resolve the problem is crucial given that faulty receptacles can start a house fire and result in serious damage to your home and your loved ones.

  • Why Seek Professional Help?

While you may be tempted to troubleshoot some of the electrical issues in your home by yourself, it’s important to be very cautious when working with lighting products & electricity.

Some of the reasons why you should seek professional help for any general repair needs in your home include:

  • No Safety Worries

Electricity & lighting products can be extremely dangerous to work around, especially if you haven’t been trained to work with it safely. An experienced electrician has the proper knowledge & tools to perform the task faster and at a lower cost. Not to mention - they’ll provide you with a safer home!

  • Issue Resolved Instantly

If you try to fix an electric problem yourself, or have an inexperienced friend handle it, it’s likely that you’ll have to hire a professional handyman service anyway to fix the job later. However, by hiring a professional, you can ensure the job is done right the first time with no need for last-minute emergency fixes.

  • Professional Work Guaranteed

As with most issues in your home, electrical work is best left to the professionals. This way you can be sure that the work is backed by a professional guarantee as well as many years of education and experience.

Whatever your general repair needs, at FML, our team of professionals can provide a wide range of general repair services to keep your home, your family and your property safe for many years to come.
