Hi,

I'm hoping someone could shed some light on a couple of problems that I have been experiencing in my home. When the ac kicks on in the summer, and also when I turn on the microwave, my lights will dim. Also, the door from the outside into the garage, everytime I touch the handle, I get shocked. And lastly, sometimes when I flick light switches, they make a crackling noise for a second. If anyone has any clue on what I might have to have done, please let me know. Thanks for your time!!

"Also, the door from the outside into the garage, everytime I touch the handle, I get shocked. "

That could potentially kill you .

No way to even guess at what the problem is see it in person.

You really need to get an electrican to look at it. And the diming lights.

Dimming lights are an indication of to small of wiring, bad connections or an overloaded transformer.

If it was just the dimming light I would suggest that you start with the power company.

"And lastly, sometimes when I flick light switches, they make a crackling noise for a second. "

Worn switches that need to be replaced.
