Cause of Burnt Out Light Bulbs and Hot Cooking Oven


By Dave Rongey - Summary:

Why light bulbs may be burning out too soon an cooking appliances are too hot.

Possible Home Electrical Utility Power Problem

Electrical Question: I have replaced 10 light bulbs in our NEW home in 3 months, and already 3 have burnt out. Also my stove and crock pot cook very hot on a low setting. Could this be a wiring problem? How could it pass a home inspection?

This electrical question came from: Michell, a Homeowner from Sheridan, Wyoming

Dave’s Reply:
Thanks for your electrical question Michell

Michell, from the items you have mentioned I do not suspect there is a wiring problem with your new home, I do think that there may be a problem with the power from your electrical utility company and I would have the voltage tested. There is a good possibility that the voltage from the electrical utility company is a little high.
