Start Home A/Cs & Heat Pumps with Less Power

SoftStart Home™ high-performance soft starter turns on central A/Cs and heat pumps with less power and less noise – and when paired with home solar energy system or a backup generator, helps A/Cs run while freeing up electrical power for other appliances

A home central air conditioner is the most energy-hungry appliance in a typical home. Depending on location and season, it can account for about 70% of a monthly electric bill.

With high or fluctuating electricity costs, aging power grid problems, and emergencies that require backup power, many homeowners are looking for ways to keep comfortable during normal AND special conditions. So it’s natural that improving air conditioning efficiency can play a big role in that quest.

How SoftStartHome Uses Less Power, Saves on Costs Now and Later

When a central A/C or heat pump starts, it can require 7 to 8 times the amount of electricity used when it is normally running. The startup creates such an instant drain on the household power that lights can flicker and other appliances can be affected. 

The sudden inrush of power also jolts and superheats the A/C’s own components which can lead to premature wear or breakdown. You know that is happening every time you hear the loud “thump” when an air conditioner starts up. 

The SoftStart Home™ high-performance soft starter from SoftStartUSA reduces the power to start a central air conditioner or heat pump by up to 70%. Designed for 6-ton/72,000 BTU units with 115-230VAC single-phase motors, SoftStart Home connects directly to an air conditioner or heat pump to help “throttle back” the startup power to only 2-3 times the standard A/C running power. 

As a result, SoftStart Home helps homeowners greatly reduce their overall household peak amperage, extend the life of heat-sensitive components, and enjoy quiet comfort all day and all night.

Achieve Cool, Continuous Comfort

Even in Low-Power Conditions

As more homeowners look for alternative sources of electric power – whether to ease their reliance on a power grid or to obtain essential backup power in emergencies – a SoftStart Home soft starter offers even more advantages in limited power applications.

From sources such as 2200-watt and larger generators or solar-energized, a SoftStart Home soft starter allows you to run an A/C or heat pump more effectively by greatly limiting condenser startup power. Especially in emergency situations, this frees up power for other vital appliances such as refrigerators or medical devices – all while keeping the A/C or heat pump running.

And to ensure even more complete power efficiency, SoftStart Home devices can be connected to other inductive-reliant startup appliances, such as refrigerators, freezers and pumps – to help further reduce inrush power spikes that can shut down a limited-power source.

Power Up More Appliances

Because each SoftStart Home cuts the inrush current of all “hard-starting” appliances, the backup power won’t trip off when these appliances start while others are operating. Water heaters, coffeemakers, lights, hair dryers and entertainment centers will keep running as long as the “running” power of all the appliances does not exceed the amount of power being produced.

World-Class Technical Service and Support

To make the installation process as easy as possible, offers simplified installation schematics for many central air conditioners. The Customer Support section also lets customers register their product purchase which automatically extends the SoftStart Home warranty to two years.

To assure successful installation, the SoftStart Home support team offers several personalized options if extra help is needed. 

For example, if doesn’t have instructions for a specific air conditioner, a custom drawing will be made. All it takes is submitting a picture of the electrical diagram on the air conditioner and information about the A/C via a Support Ticket from the website. Once that is complete, a color diagram with step-by-step instructions will be sent to the customer.

If someone is still not comfortable with the installation process, then a complete “live” installation with a SoftStart Home technical expert can be scheduled through the Support Ticket process. Set up a date and time with the support team and one of their members will walk you through the installation, step-by-step, over the phone.
