When central air is running lights flicker?

The lights are flickering Due to a high starting amp draw created by the compressor starting. This may be a problem starting with the compressor or maybe rectified by adding a hard start kit to the compressor circuit to reduce the starting amp draw. However there can be several reasons for the high amp draw. Some of the problems can be... Over charge of refrigerant, a capacitor that is getting weak, not enough delay between cycles, loose wires or bad connections or a compressor that is in the first stage of failing. In any case the charge should be properly checked and a hard start kit should be added.
