A/C Hard Start Kit - Smart Investment

A hard start is an extra capacitor that can be installed inside your air conditioning system. It provides the compressor with a boost of energy every time it starts up. This boost of energy is important because compressors draw the most amount of electricity during the first few seconds when they turn on, and much less afterwards while they are running. Two of the benefits of installing a hard start kit in your air conditioning are the following:

  • Extend the life of the compressor – After years of use, it is not uncommon for a compressor to burn out and need to be replaced. This is one of the most expensive repairs for an AC system. The compressor failure typically happens as a result of overheating from drawing large amounts of power overtime. A hard start kit extends the life of the compressor by reducing the required amount of electricity to be drawn during startup.

  • Increase Energy Efficiency – Hard starts utilize the energy consumed by your AC system more efficiently. A more efficient system means that your energy bill, and the likelihood of parts breaking from overheating, will both decrease.
