Question:The lights in the home pulsate when air conditioner is on.
Thanks for your electrical question Perry. I would advise a electrical safety inspection of the electrical panel and the wiring and size of the circuit which provides power to the air conditioner. I am curious what size the electrical panel is as well. If the electrical service is reaching its capacity then you may consider upgrading to a larger electrical service panel.

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
