FAQ

My lights are flickering, is that dangerous?

Your lights may be flickering for any number of reasons ranging from completely normal to dangerous.

It is normal and not dangerous if your lights dim or flicker when large appliances such as an air conditioner come on. This is caused by the appliance drawing a larger amount of power to start up the motor.

If the lights are flickering in one fixture or room, this can be caused by an issue with the fixture, the circuit breaker or one of the outlets or switches on the circuit.

Flicking lights throughout your house can be caused by problems in your electrical panel or from the utility. If all the lights in your home are flickering, you should call a licensed electrician to evaluate the issue.
