fluctuating voltage in a brand new home
First and foremost, I beilive you would need at least a 200 amp service for your home. Other than that, there are or should be 4 main wires coming in from the power source.
#1 and 2 will be the two main lugs.( 110 and 110 volts. Then you should have two more wires coming in. These will or should be a green wire for ground and a white wire for the neutral. The other thing I would check is maybe you have a loose connection somewhere. Last and not least is the service wires coming in may not be large enough to support all the draw you require. My advice is to call a reputable electrician and have him inspect the home and determine where the problem is.
PS. Also have an HVAC tech. check your ground unit ( A/C ) for starting problems. Sometimes brand new units are defective and due to a compressor malfunction, may draw more amps than necessary.
In my opinion there is nothing wrong with the wiring, plus a bad ground connection wont have any effect at all on this (thats just a guess pulled out of the air).
Since the A/C is on both but not on the neutral this is a possibility it is creating a huge drop in the line. This leaves the power company lines and the A/C unit to be checked.
Generally light blinking can be attributed to a bad or loose neutral connection, or an imbalance is the overall system but since iit is happening when the Air unit cycles That would be a good place to start.
If indeed it is a new house the lights should not blink unless the runs are extremely long and circuits are undersized creating a voltage drop to the point where the lights are dimming.
I would call the power company ask them to check there lines and an HCAC guy to checck the unit and if it is the unit bill the GC.
