How about a follow-up question: What are the group's thoughts about this Soft Start device?
I installed one on my AC. We had an issue with the 30 amp breaker tripping when we would try and run the AC an any high draw appliances (i.e. the microwave) I installed the Micro-air EasyStart on my AC and haven't had a breaker trip since. It was well worth the investment for me. It was a pretty easy install too.
