Tech Talk Tip: Lights Dimming?

As an air conditioning condenser gets older, the capacitor starts to lose its energy storage capability. The compressor takes longer to start and home owners may notice possible dimming of the lights in their house.


Replacing a weak capacitor is only a partial fix. Adding a SUPCO┬« "Hardstart Kit" is a more viable solution.  A Hardstart Kit adds an additional boost of energy during the condenser start up. By reducing the heat on the motor start winding, it helps increase the lifespan of the compressor and prevents the annoying dimming of house lights. Plus, reducing the inrush current can also help your customers save energy.
