Dimming lights


For some reason the lights in three rooms of my house(all at the same end) have started dimming sporadically. I don't know what could be causing this. It's not all of the time. Any ideas?? Thanks.

Are these lights all on the same circuit? Sounds like you have failing connection somewhere in that circuit, which is potentially quite dangerous.

I am not sure. But I assume they are. They all started at the same time. Would that be a breaker or wiring?
