Why Do My Lights Always Flicker? Here Are Three Main Culprits

Power outages could often be a cause of your lights either constantly flickering or going out. The weather could also cause this issue. Mother nature can be brutal to deal with at times, which happens more often than not in some areas. Or there could be a deeper issue that is plaguing your electric system. If your lights are constantly flickering when they shouldn’t, keep reading to learn more about this issue.

These reasons might be the cause of your flickering lights.

The Light Switches Need to Be Replaced

Faulty light switches could be the primary issue of your lights flickering. Faulty light switches tend to overheat, which they shouldn’t do. Once you have found a damaged light switch, leave it alone. Instead, you should immediately call Tri Star Electric professionals for assistance.

Electrical System is Aging

Another cause of flickering lights is that your home’s wiring and electrical systems are getting old. Appliances around your home and electronic devices can also contribute to this issue. Keep an eye on everything, especially your devices. Your electrical system might experience minor power surges. When your lights start flickering unexpectedly, it is a warning sign that something has gone wrong.

Your LED Lights Need Brand New Dimmers

If you rely on LED lights connected to dimmer switches, the controls might need to be replaced. When an electrical circuit is damaged, lights flicker on and off. If you experience these signs, your home could risk an electrical fire. It would be wise to take preventative measures to resolve any issues you may have.
