It sounds as if the problem is not in your house, But more at the transformer. What is
happening is when the other house's heat comes on, while yours or the third house is on,
The transformer is being overloaded, or is just getting weak. And the other possibility is
the house that seems to be the problem has a loose connection most likely at the pole,
and causing excessive load on the transformer. Nun the less it sounds like a power
company problem, and you should call them. The should be happy to look at it and fix it.
