Question electrical home

I have electical outages ever so often that effects aprx half of my circuits. The circuit breaker does not kick and it will reset and come back on after a while aprox 1 hour. the heater is one of the circuits that goes out ,the lights flicker at times. And if I leave some of the lights on the circuits that go out on it doesn`t lose the power on these circuits. does anyone have any thoughts
Thanks Gary

Call your power company. Tell them what you told us. Ask them to check it out.

Hello gholt200,
I'm not an electrician but I believe that your electric heater is suppose to have a deignated circuit.One that is soley provided for the supply of electricity to your heater and nothing else.If you have outlets and lights attached to this circuit, this could be causing your problem.All major appliances should have dsignated circuits,Refrigerator,Range,Dryer,Microwave.Check out the NEC and it's always a good thing to check out local codes.
