I have a new addition on my house, basically three big rooms. The upstairs BR has 8 recessed light cans. The downstairs LR, directly below the BR has 8 recessed light cans. The Kitchen, adjacent to the LR has 5 light cans. The lightbulbs in the LR and BR are about 13 months old. The kitchen lightbulbs burn out every 4-6 months. I've tried several types of compatible florescent bulbs including the super-energy conserving coil bulbs that are meant to last three years. The kitchen is directly below a bathroom -- a small bathroom with very low traffic so not likely to cause any more vibration on the cans below than any of the others.
Why is this happening? How do I know if there is a problem with the wiring? How do I test this?
