How do I fix flickering lights in my house?

If the flickering is limited to a single light, ensure the bulb is securely fastened in place. Bulbs can become loose over time and lose their connection to the socket. Tighten the bulb if necessary. If it fails, you might try replacing it.

If turning on your air conditioner or washing machine causes several lights to flicker, blink or dim, your issue might be an overloaded circuit. If the flickering occurs on a regular basis, is intense and/or does not stop immediately, you could have a wiring problem. Make an appointment with an electrician to determine the root of the problem.

How much does it cost to fix electrical problems in a house?

Hiring an electrician to install or repair light fixtures, outlets, switches or fans costs between $141 and $419 on average, with homeowners spending $280 on average. Expect to pay $2,000 to $6,000 for bigger electrical tasks such as wiring installation or replacing an electrical panel.

What types of problems can occur in an electrical circuit?

Flickering lights, excessive utility bills and broken appliances are all signs of electrical circuit issues. Three of the most common household electrical problems are listed below:


Lightning strikes, power line damage, malfunctioning appliances and poor electrical wiring in the home can all create electrical surges. While a surge only lasts a microsecond, numerous surges can harm the electrical components linked to your house, dramatically reducing their life expectancy.


Dimmer switches that do not adjust light adequately are frequently the result of poor craftsmanship or inferior components. If you're having problems with switches in your home, contact an electrician.


Recessed lighting is outfitted with safety mechanisms that shut power to the light when it becomes too hot. You're either using a bulb with a too-high wattage or the insulation in the ceiling is too close to the light.



Does a 1970s house need rewiring near Cape Coral FL?

The condition of the existing wiring, the type of wiring and materials used, and the electrical needs of the home's occupants may ultimately determine if a home from the 1970s needs rewiring. 

Overall, older homes may have outdated electrical systems that are not up to current safety standards or cannot accommodate the increased electrical demands of modern appliances and electronics. Common issues with older wiring systems include inadequate grounding, worn insulation, and outdated electrical panels and breakers.

If the wiring in a 1970s house has not been updated, it may be a good idea to have an electrical inspection performed by a licensed electrician. They can assess the condition of the wiring and identify any potential safety hazards or code violations.

Depending on the findings of the inspection, rewiring may be recommended to improve safety and meet current electrical standards. This can be a significant project, but it can also improve the functionality and safety of the home's electrical system and increase its resale value.
