Why are all of the lights in my house dim?

I mean, they are dimmer than usual.

The bulb wattage in your lights will deterimine how bright the light will glow. You can purchase higher watt bulbs that don't have a frosted glass outside (its clear) and will glow brighter than the bulbs you have now. There are also energy saving bulbs that glow brightly that can save you on your electric bill every month.

The usual cause for this is a low voltage. Check the voltage at your plug points and also your main board with a voltmeter. IF it is low get the power supply to your house checked by the Electricty company. Loose wires, wear and tear, etc could account for dimmer lights, but this affects only specific lights - not all!

First, I would check to see if you have a dimmer setting on your lights. If so, then it may justbe set to dim. Otherwise I woudl guess that you are in the middle of a "brown out". A "brown out" is where there is less electricity getting to your house then needed.

The power supplied does not reach the expected capacity.Consider a thorough check up since there could be power losses along your wiring system which might need upgrading.
