Ballast Replacements

Is your fluorescent light flickering or otherwise not working? There’s a good chance it could be the ballast. A fluorescent light is comprised of several different components including the light fixture itself, internal wiring and the ballast. The ballast is essentially what starts and illuminates the tube or bulb by creating the appropriate amount of voltage and current necessary.

This tiny component is also one of the most difficult to replace and is best left to a professional, unless you have prior experience with wiring. That’s where we come in. Michael & Son has been providing handyman services, such as fluorescent ballast replacement and installation, to Alexandria, Arlington, Fairfax and other metro Washington D.C. cities for more than 30 years.
