Essentially overlamping is when a light fixture has a bulb with a higher wattage than the fixture is designed for. Over the course of time the inside of many houses become out of date, straining to supply our ever-growing collection of electricity-hungry appliances, lighting, and electronics.

The signs of strain can be seen in a tangle of extension cords and power strips sprouting from a single outlet—or lurking unseen behind walls, ceilings, and cover plates.

If you have not had your wiring looked at it’s generally a sound idea to hire an electrician to conduct an inspection.

Over Wired Panels:

Over wired panels contain more circuits than they are rated to handle and hence are prone to increased risk of electrocution in the wet areas.

When you see some such panel, get an electrician on priority and get it checked.
