    Hi Christine,
    Consider contacting your electrical utility provider and describe the problem of light bulbs frequently burning out, and also mention your high electrical bills. In several locations electric utility companies offer services that will test and monitor your electrical service power to make sure it is within the acceptable specifications, as well as offer assistance to help lower your electric bill. You may also consider switching to more efficient light bulbs, such as CFL or LED bulbs which will save energy and reduce your electric bill.
    Thanks for sharing your light bulb question with us,
    Dave

    I have a problem with my light bulbs burning out quite frequently all over the house. I also noticed that my power bill is very high. If the problem is poor electrical power quality is there anything that can be done?
