Tech Experts Edition: Hard Start Kits

In this episode, we answer the question of the week from the previous episode, “Does a residential AC scroll need a hard start kit?” John & James answer this by walking through different scenarios in which you would and would not need a hard start kit for your system. We also discuss different resources that can be used to understand this topic a little better such as Copeland Mobile, AE Bulletins, OPI, and calling the service helpline.
