OK, I seem to have a wiring problem in the house, it seems that 9 times out of 10 times, when I switch a light on in the house and it decides to blow with a bright flicker and a quick pop, it also takes a fuse from the main fuse box with it, so i have to go into the garage to flick the switch. I've never had this problem in my previous house, so does this sound normal?
And the main reason for this post is the light I have at the top of the stairs from the landing is constantly flickering, it's on a dual circuit(not sure of the correct term?) where you can switch it on and off from either upstairs or downstairs, you guys know what i mean! But there seems to be some sort of current going through at a slow rate(when switched off) which causes the bulb to flicker every 5 secs or so, and reduces the lightbulbs life to one a month!, so i'm using an energy saver now which has lasted 6 months, but even that one flickers every 10 secs or so.... anyone got any ideas on this one?
I've been a bit suspect about the wiring in the home for sometime now, is it worth getting in an electrician to give it a once over for peace of mind? and anyone recommend any specialists/electricians in the Solihull area?
