This problem does not mean you have a major wiring fault. This is an issue which has been looked into for many years. If you have wiring fault in your circuit it will be picked up by fuses and MCB’s long before it gets to the bulb. Once Power is getting to the light fitting at the correct voltage the bulb (lamps) will light.
There are a few reasons why bulbs will blow, the major one is fitting cheap bulbs in particular the ones purchased from large discount chains. The elements in these cheap bulbs are much thinner than the more expensive brand name bulbs (lamps) and any surge of power, however slight, simply breaks them.Vibration caused by closely located machinery (Fans,Pumps etc) can have the same effect.
A loose connection in the fittings lamp holder can also cause bulbs to blow. This is because the circuit is not completed as tightly as it could be and the electricity may have to “arc” or jump across the contact, rather than simply flowing through it. When this happens it produces more heat in the fitting than is expected or catered for by the bulb, and the bulb can weaken due to the heat and blow.
Don’t buy cheap lamps,
Check for loose connections
