Frequently, a burned out light bulb may not be the bulb’s fault. The electrical wiring may not have a strong connection, causing the bulb to burn out faster. Other common issues include poor air circulation around the bulb, overtightened bulbs or high voltage such as caused by an electrical pulse.

Light bulbs are fairly easy to replace but can come with unnecessary costs if you continue to replace them. The first thing you can do is check the holder for any loose connections. Lamps are probably the easiest to check and adjust yourself. More complicated electrical issues are better left to a professional who can discover the root of the problem for you. They can recommend a solution that fixes the problem for the long haul and saves you money over time.
