1. Dirt increases the heat in the lamps so clean them more often. Remember that heat is the number one cause of lighting failure.

2. Protect your lamps against corrosion with lubricants and sealants.

3. DO NOT pierce or cut the wire insulation when troubleshooting the lighting system; if it is inevitable, make sure you properly and carefully seal it afterwards.

4. Check connections to the electrical system to prevent low voltage and lighting problems.

5. Make sure the lights are properly grounded.

6. To avoid too many expenses, properly check your lamps before discarding them; be sure not to dispose of lamps that are still in good operating condition. Examine the bulbs carefully to see the cause of the lighting problem. If you see dark and metallic finish, you may consider now replacing them since this means that the lights are already old and may soon wear down.
