At one time or another, most people will experience flickering or dimming lights in their homes. It can be annoying. It can also be a sign of a more serious problem. Here’s how to tell the difference.

If your lights dim when you use a printer, microwave, space theater, hairdryer, or another device that uses a lot of energy, it’s usually nothing to be alarmed about. But if you experience frequent dimming or flickering lights, or burnt out light bulbs, it may be a sign of a serious electrical issue. Flickering or dimming lights sometimes means there are loose connections in light switches, outlets, or your electrical panel. Loose connections cause electrical arcing. Arcing occurs when a spark of electricity jumps from one connection to another. Arcing could cause a fire, which means this could be a serious issue that needs to be addressed.
