Non working or missing bulbs

One of the most common electrical hazards that we find while inspecting older homes is exposed incandescent light bulbs. Its not only a fire hazard but also a shatter safety hazard. One can accidentally shatter a bulb and get glass in their eyes.

We recommend replacing existing bare bulb lights with lights that have globes enclosing the bulb.  Replacing a light has always required special training and electrical knowledge, but theres a new product available that installs with as much effort as replacing a light bulb, called an Easy Light.
