Why Do My Lights Dim?


Ever wonder why your lights seem to dim when you plug in the vacuum cleaner or blow dryer? This is a common occurrence for homeowners all across the country - especially those with older electrical systems in their homes.  Not only can dimming lights be a nuisance, it could signify that you have some serious electrical problems going on.

  1. The first, and probably the most common reason why lights dim when you plug in another appliance or electrical device is that the circuit is overloaded. It could mean the circuit is old and outdated and that it’s time to upgrade the system.
  2. Poor wiring could be another reason your experience dimming or flickering lights. Old wiring may not be able to provide your devices with enough power to run properly. Additionally, loose or corroded wires could be causing the problem.
  3. But it may not be your home’s electrical system’s fault at all. Dimming lights could be a result of a problem with the power grid. Blown transformers or an interrupted service feed are both common when bad weather makes its way into town.
Whatever the case may be, dimming or flickering lights is not a situation you should taken lightly. Contact an electrician right away to come over and inspect your home and get the electrical system back where it needs to be.
