HARD START CAPACITOR
Starting up is the hardest time in the life of any type of electrical equipment. Ever notice that light bulbs almost always burn out when you first turn them on and not while they are on? This is due to the huge current that rushes in when a switch is thrown and power is first applied.
Your air conditioner uses anywhere from 5 to 10 times more power on start-up than it does while running. With this burst of power comes a surge of heat that accompanies the electrical current. This heat damages the compressor, the terminals, the windings and run capacitor – all vital components of your air conditioner. When weakened, your run capacitor and system can use 10% to 20% more electricity than before!
The compressor saver protects these components by significantly reducing the amount of time it takes for your compressor to start – in some cases up to 50%. This means your air conditioner and compressor will bear – the stress, strain, and heat each and every time it starts. Considering that your air conditioner may start up more than 6,000 times in a single cooling season, the positive impact that the compressor saver has on your air conditioner is significant.
THE COMPRESSOR SAVER CAN:
- Extend the life of your compressor.
- Reduce damaging in-rush current by up to 50%.
- Protect vital internal components.
- Save homeowners from costly repairs.
- Start air conditioners that are close to breaking down.
THE COMPRESSOR SAVER COST:
- 90% LESS than REPLACING a COMPRESSOR
- 95% LESS than REPLACING an A/C
Power disturbances, surges and brownouts damage air conditioner and heat pump compressors without warning. The Compressor Defender takes the hit so air conditioners or heat pumps are never interrupted. The all-in-one Compressor Defender device protects compressors and circuit boards in residential and light commercial applications from brownouts, surges, and short cycles. The protective device can be installed inside a condensing unit or externally on an AC disconnect.
SYNTHETIC AC OIL ADDITIVE
A/C Re-New is a proven, innovative technology developed by Shrieve Chemical Products, the leading manufacturer of refrigeration and air conditioning oils and lubricants in the industry. Shrieve completed an exhaustive research and development effort to create the underlying technology found in A/C Re~New. It was first applied to automotive air conditioning units as “ICE 32,” and subsequently to residential and commercial air conditioning systems as A/C Re-New.
Some technological highlights include:
- Developed by a former NASA scientist
- Has been used in over a million automotive units
- Passed extensive third-party testing
- 5 years and multi-million-dollar investment in research & development
How Does an Air Conditioner Work?
The goal of an air conditioner is to transfer heat from one place to another. In your home or business, heat inside is transferred outside. This is accomplished through the heating and cooling of a liquid, commonly referred to as a refrigerant, in air conditioning systems.
In your home, the air that needs to be cooled is blown across coils that contain the refrigerant. The refrigerant absorbs the heat from the air. The refrigerant then travels to the outdoor or condenser coil where the heat is released. Since the refrigerant absorbs the heat, the resulting air inside is cooler and less humid. This cooler air is then blown back through your house or building.
Ways to Improve Your Air Conditioner
One way to improve how well your air conditioner cools your home is to improve the refrigerant’s ability to absorb heat. The more heat it can absorb, the cooler the resulting air.
Another way to improve how well your air conditioner cools your home is to improve the equipment (the compressor) that pumps the refrigerant throughout the house and extracts the heat out of the refrigerant. The more efficient the equipment pumping the refrigerant and releasing the heat, the faster your house can cool, and less amount of energy it will take to do so.
