Does any of your neighbours have a similar problem? You might want to contact your supplier for the electrical the transformer feeding your house may have a problem It is also possible the problem could be into the service meter again that is the supplers responsiblity to go in and check. It is not a job for a DIYer. If these things check out ok then you may have a problem in the mains of the panel, this would be rare as most of the time this type of problem usually is the result of something in the supplies service.

Does this tend to happen at the same time as a large motor or heating device is coming on - such as a pump or the furnace?
If this is the case then it could be that there are some wiring issues inside your home to be dealt with.
