This has never happened before two weeks ago. The lights just dimmed that one time. So, do I call an electrician out ? And, what could that 'pop' be that I heard?
About 3 weeks ago, I thought I heard a 'pop' in the kitchen area (the cats did too as they both looked in that direction) but when I went to check around nothing was out of the ordinary. The lights didn't dim, the TV continued the work, the microwave clock was ok, etc.
The lights just dimmed once.
What do you mean by 'the problem is ...ahead on the utility wiring'?
So, I need to call an electrician is your basic answer. Right?
