blown light bulbs

hello all,

I've recently noticed that my entire house tends to blow light bulbs like crazy, is there a simple test that can be preformed to find out if there is a problem with my electrical system.

With a voltage meter, test the incoming voltage at a receptacle. It should be between 110 and 125 in the US. Higher than that may cause blown bulbs. If it is high, contact your power company and/or install rough use bulbs rated at 130 volts.
