Owning a property can be rewarding – most of the time. There are occasions however when this joy is somewhat diluted, such as when something big and worrying occurs. Unless one is blessed with an enclopaedic knowledge of how to install, mend, rebuild things, then it’s going to require an expert to come in and rid you of the worry. Take fluourescent lights – this house has several tubes installed in the garage. There’s are two doubles, one near the front up & over door and the other placed very conveniently near the electricity control box. There’s also a single unit placed just inside the integral door to the house. For the last eighteen years or so, they’ve all worked as soon as the single light switch has been operated. But suddenly they’ve started wearing out and I’m down to 1 flickering tube out of 5. I had to call an electrician in to quote for repairs and making good. At least the job is in hand and won’t cause a headache for much longer.
