Ballast Replacement in Charlotte, NC

Many of the issues people notice with fluorescent lights have nothing to do with the light itself, but rather the ballast. This device acts as a governor for the amount of electricity flowing to the fluorescent tube. The light flickers, buzzes or hums, and may stop working if the ballast gets damaged or broken.

Ballast replacement is a simple task for a licensed electrician, but it’s not something most people should try themselves because it involves electrical wiring.

If your fluorescent lights need a ballast replacement or you want an expert to figure out the cause of flickering or humming lights, call the pros at Roby Electric. We provide ballast replacement and lighting repairs for homes and businesses throughout Charlotte, NC and its surrounding areas.

Call us at 704.334.6447 or schedule an estimate online for ballast replacement and any other lighting wiring services you may need.

Why Ballast Problems Cause Flickering Lights

Whereas an incandescent bulb lights a filament, a fluorescent light sends an electrical current to a tube of gas that lights up. The ballast mediates how much current flows to the fluorescent gas — to prevent overheating, broken lights, or insufficient light. 

Ballasts can last for many years, but the older varieties were not as high-quality and long-lasting as new ones available today. The effects of time and all that electrical flow cause it to break down eventually, especially if it was improperly sized for the light fixture.

Before calling Roby Electric, you can remove the light cover and open the ballast to look for any scorches or burn damage, leakage, or disrepair. Then ask our Charlotte electricians to visit your office or home and replace the ballast with a better, more energy-efficient one.
