Issue: Lights flicker or dim unexpectedly.
Possible Causes: Loose bulbs, poor connections, or voltage fluctuations.

Possible Causes: Plugging too many devices into a single circuit.
Repair: Distribute the load among different circuits. Consider installing additional circuits if needed. Avoid using multiple high-wattage appliances on the same circuit.
