Troubleshooting Flickering Lights by Jacksonville Licensed Electricians

American Electric offers troubleshooting services for flickering lights in Jacksonville. Our electricians specialize in how to troubleshoot flickering lights and how the reason could be caused by severe issues like loose wiring and voltage fluctuations. Let the experts at American Electric help!

Flickering lights are not just annoying, they are potentially dangerous! Very dangerous! Lights flickering on one circuit could be warning you of a more serious issue and one that could easily result in a home or business fire. As any fireman will tell you – “It’s never a good idea to ignore any lighting or electrical problem.”

Before you call American Electric, try turning off the power at the breaker box and make sure the bulb is properly screwed in or installed. If it is, it’s time to call us…(904) 664-5539 and we will give you all the help you need.


  • Loose Wiring – is a reason for lights flickering on one circuit and a main cause of house fires. Shut off the light at the circuit breaker before removing the fixture to double-check the wiring. If the fixture looks like it might be loose or insecure, it’s time to call us and our licensed electricians will solve the problem.
  • Voltage Fluctuations – If your lights flicker when you turn on an appliance with a high wattage, like a microwave, oven, washer or dryer, or the air conditioner clicks on the reason could be because the voltage in your home is fluctuating too much. This could be a symptom of a more serious electrical issue. Other signs that the voltage in your home isn’t right to include lights that dim unexpectedly or bulbs that frequently burn out.
  • Faulty Wall Switch – Another reason you could have flickering lights is because the light switch isn’t properly installed or may have a short circuit that could possibly cause a fire.
  • Flickering Fluorescent Lights & LED Lights – Certain types of lighting technology are naturally more prone to flickering than others. For example, flickering fluorescent lights sometimes occur while the phosphors reach peak illumination during the first few minutes of turning them on or when the bulbs are connected to a defective ballast. It is also possible for LED lights to flicker when improperly connected to a driver or with certain dimming or rheostat systems. This is a symptom that it is probably time to replace the lighting fixture or its failing components.
