I put a Soft Start kit on one of my A/C's. made a big and I mean BIG difference. Will have to do the other one some day if they did not factory install (I go topside next month for routine maintenance and will check at that time)


Home is where I park it.

awesome product... purchase the optional installation kit. I forgot to tell my wife to order it, and it would have helped.

you might want to try one from this guy. his web sight is under construction but he sells on eBay under applianceandair name. they are about a 1/4 of the cost of a micro air. I have one for my ac and it works perfect.

It's not at all like the MicroAire unit.

The thing on eBay is just a time delay that lets the compressor spin up first and then turns on the blower motor.

The MicroAire uses a digital processor to measure and limit compressor startup current, making it easier for a small generator to spool up the load.
