Hello, everyone. I'm Joshua Clement with Lighty Contractors. Today, I want to talk to you about troubleshooting ceiling fan lights blowing. Something you have to watch out for is to make sure that your light bulbs are the correct size. If it says don't go over 60 watt you don't want to put a 75 in there, it'll give you a little bit more light but it'll burn out faster. Another thing is, when you're running the ceiling fan what happens is it tends to vibrate. And that causes your light bulbs not to last as long. Also, if your ceiling fan happens to be by a front door or on a ceiling where there's an upstairs and it shakes a lot, that will reduce the life of your ceiling fan bulbs as well. Something else a lot of people don't know is if your ceiling fan bulbs are hooked to a dimmer switch that's restricting the amount of electricity that goes to it so it burns them out faster. I'm Joshua Clement with Lighty Contractors and we just talked about troubleshooting a ceiling fan bulbs blowing. Thanks for watching, good luck with this project.
