Micro Air Easy Start

Air Conditioning Off Grid – Soft Start

$299.00 $0.00

Want to know how we run our Air Conditioner off of our batteries?  We use a soft start!

That’s right.  Because of our solar set up and our lithium batteries, we can run our Air Conditioner without having to run a generator.  It’s a beautiful thing!

We first learned about a soft start when we wanted to figure out how to run our Air Conditioner on our RV when wild camping. I contacted Micro-Air and asked them about their soft starters, and which one would work with our RV A/C units.  I was told: The EasyStart 3T will provide a minimum of a 50% decrease in the Locked Rotor Amp (LRA), bringing the A/C amp spike to (or below) 31a. If we installed this product, it should allow us to run our A/C using the inverter without spiking past the inverter’s 40a max.

Now that we are living on a sailboat (and enduring Florida’s steamy summer temps) installing a soft start on our air conditioner was a big priority.  Not only for our personal comfort, but for the comfort and safety of our cats while out at anchor.
