Cranney Home Services can help you choose the perfect blend of style and security to create an outdoor space that’s both safe and enjoyable. The possibilities with outdoor lighting are endless:

Common Residential Lighting ProblemsWith over 30 years of experience in residential lighting and electrical systems, we’ve seen and resolved every lighting problem there is. When you call Cranney Home Services for lighting repair, we’ll look not only at the lights that are having issues, but also at your electrical system to identify and fix all potential factors. Below are the most common home lighting problems we see:
- Flickering lights
- Frequent light bulb burnouts
- Lighting fixtures get too hot
- Circuit breaker trips frequently
- Lights not working, even with new bulbs
- Lights go dim when an appliance is turned on
Why are the lights in my home flickering?Most commonly, flickering lights are caused by a loose bulb, a bulb that is not the correct type, a loose light plug, a faulty light or fixture switch, or a voltage drop caused when an appliance is turned on and pulls large amounts of current. Rarely, flickering lights are a sign of a more serious electrical issue, such as a loose circuit connection, which can grow hot enough to start a fire. You should have an electrician inspect your lights to rule out or fix safety hazards.
Why do my light bulbs keep burning out early?There are several reasons why your light bulbs could be burning out too frequently. It could be a simple problem, such as the bulb being loose, or excessive vibrations in your home breaking the filaments in the bulbs. It could be a more serious issue, such as loose wiring or an issue with your electrical system that causes it to supply too much voltage to the light.
How can I improve my indoor lighting?Try to maximize natural light by keeping your windows clean and opening blinds and curtains during the day. You can also add reflective surfaces to help bounce light around rooms (mirrors, shiny floors, metallic finishes). Try to have at least three sources of light in each room: overhead lighting, localized lighting (table and floor lamps), and ambient lighting (recessed lighting, track lighting, sconces, etc).
Can outdoor lights turn off automatically in the day?Yes, most outdoor lights are set up to turn themselves off in the day to save energy. This can be achieved with a timer, which lets you set them to turn on and off on a specific schedule. Some lights also have light sensors, so they won’t come on when it’s light outside.
I don’t like overhead or pendant lighting, but I don’t want to use floor and table lamps. How can I light a room without overhead lighting?There are a few options for hardwired lighting that is not directly overhead in a room. You can install wall sconces to light your room from the sides, or recessed lighting can be installed in different spots on your ceiling for a more gentle light. Another option is track lighting, which allows you to point the lights different directions instead of straight down. Questions about home lighting?
