Stay Cool or Warm with Up to 70% Less Power to Start Your A/C or Heat Pump

SOFTSTART HOME™ Keeps People Comfortable and Safe at Home – Even Using Backup Power or Solar Power

FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., Jan. 24, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- SoftStart Home™ high-performance soft starters turn on central A/Cs and heat pumps using up to 70% less power than normal. When paired with a home solar energy system or backup generator, it helps A/Cs start easier while freeing up power for other appliances.

SoftStart Home™ A/C and heat pump starter uses less power to help people stay cool with less noise, more efficiency.

For homes that rely on limited electrical power sources – such as solar power or backup generators in emergencies – the new SoftStart Home soft starter provides uninterrupted comfort when used with air conditioners and heat pumps.

Especially for homeowners using "off-grid" options such as solar energy, te smoother-starting A/C that results with a SoftStart Home unit eases the strain on battery-stored energy, making it a virtual "must-have" for those considering a home solar energy system.

"With a SoftStart Home unit connected to their central A/C or heat pump, homeowners can stay continuously comfortable virtually no matter what their power source is," said Doug Curtis of SoftStartUSA. "It lets them convert their existing hard-starting unit to a more efficient soft-starting appliance without spending thousands on a new central unit," Curtis continued.

Even in Low-Power Conditions, You Can Start A/C, Medical Devices and Refrigerator

With limited-power sources such as 2200-watt generators or solar-energized batteries, a SoftStart Home soft starter improves essential backup power efficiency in emergencies. By reducing A/C startup amps, it frees up power for other vital appliances such as refrigerators or medical devices – all while keeping the air conditioner running.

Up to 70% Less Power Needed to Start a Central A/C or Heat Pump

Designed for 6-ton/72,000 BTU air conditioners and heat pumps, a SoftStart Home soft starter "throttles back" the startup power to only 2-3 times the standard running power and quiets the loud noise or shudder when the unit starts. As a result, it can reduce overall household peak amperage, extend the life of A/C components, and provide quiet comfort all day and night.
