It’s easy to change a standard light bulb as long as you keep the wattages similar. If you have recessed lighting, it may be a little harder. Sometimes the bulb will be good, but the light won’t turn on. If this is the case, there are some things you can do before you call a professional. Check to see if insulation on the wires are going bad. Another thing to check is the actual wiring itself.
- Take a look around and check on the insulation to make sure it’s still good.
- Another common problem is that the wire itself is going or is bad.
- Look at the limit switch as that is another common part to go down.
