energyLiving in an historic house is a constant learning experience. This past week I lost electricity to all of the ceiling fixtures on the second floor of our circa 1840’s home. In the course of determining the cause, I discovered several other issues that required attention, too. After an extensive search that involved testing every outlet and fixture, the electrical problem was located at faulty dimmer switch that had only recently been installed. Fortunately, I kept the original switch and we now have light again. I also gained valuable knowledge about repairing my old house…when a problem arises, always start by looking at where a new item has replaced an original.
