Hard Start Kit
A hard start kit is designed to assist your compressor on start-up. If your inside air conditioning coil is located more than 50 feet from your outside condensing unit, lights dim when the a/c comes on, is older than 10 yrs, or you have been told you have lower voltage; you could use a hard start kit. The number one failure of compressors is the start winding failing, hard start kits protect the start windings by allowing a lower amperage while starting. Lower amps mean a cooler motor and cooler motors mean less damage.
