Every time I turn on a light switch in my house I worry that another bulb will be burned out. I have replaced every bulb in this house at least once and some two or three times...we have only been here four months! Is this an indication of bad wiring?

Have a qualified Electrician check the neutrals terminations in your distribution panel (circuit beaker panel)

Dear RNV,
You might also ask your electrical provider to check the voltage coming into your home. Wher I live in Ga., I had this problem. It turned out I was getting 146 Volts to the box. I even made them pay for the bulbs and appliances that burned out in the first two weeks.
