What is an Air Conditioner Hard Start Kit? Do I need one?

January 7, 2021

Is your air conditioner struggling to turn on? Do you notice lights flickering when your system kicks on, or hear a clicking noise when it starts up? You may also notice your system will turn itself off abruptly right after it starts. If you’re experiencing any of these issues, a hard start kit may be what you need.

A hard start kit is a capacitor that stores energy and helps your air conditioner start when it struggles to turn on. It helps to start your system up quicker and reduces the amount of energy it takes to get your AC up and running. Which not only reduces damage to AC parts but helps to prolong the life of your system.
