in-rush amp draw of a a/c is a lot. make sure wire size/breaker size are correct as well panel is large enough to handle a/c If the lights throughout the house dim, there is likely a problem in the feed to the house. This can be due to poor or loose connections that handle moderate steady state currents, but show this symptom when challenged with surge currents.

The first air conditioner for the home was available in 1928 when Willis Haviland Carrier developed the 'Weathermaker', an air conditioner for private home use.

An air conditioner cools or heats the air entering your home.

Lights at home are connected in parallel. (Switches are connected in series with the lights in order to turn them on and off.) This way, each light receives the same voltage. Placing the lights in series would divide the voltage between the lights, reducing the power of each, and it would have the effect that one light burning out would cause all the others on the same circuit to stop working.
