84% of Millennials Can’t Change a Lightbulb – Here’s How To Do It

 In 2018, a survey discovered that 84% of millennials admitted not knowing how to change a light bulb. So what they do when it needs changing?

Well, 74% of them would rather pay someone else to do it for them.

LocaL2LocaL offers Lightbulb Change Services for its Seekers, however, for those of you crazy people that haven't downloaded our App yet, here's how you can do it yourself.

1.Buy Your Replacement Bulb

Before you start the process, it helps to have the new light bulb with you. Check your old bulb up close, take a picture and buy a new one that matches the socket.

2.Turn Off Power

This is one of the most important steps. Never, ever, EVER attempt changing a light bulb with the power still on.

3.Let the Bulb Cool Down

You won't need to allow too much time for LED light bulbs, as they produce little head. If you're changing incandescent light bulbs, you'd definitely need to let them cool before handling.

4.Remove the Old Bulb

Bayonet and GU10 Fittings – Hold the bulb lightly but firmly, gently push upwards and turn anticlockwise until it comes out.

Screw Fittings – Gently twist bulb anticlockwise until it comes out.

5. Insert Replacement Bulb

Carefully push the bulb into the socket, and turn clockwise until it locks into place.

Step 6: Test New Bulb

Once secure, it should be safe to turn on the power and see if your new light bulb works.
