Hard Start Kit

Need a Long Island air conditioning company that can help you avoid compressor breakdowns?

T.F. O’Brien is the company for you.

If your air conditioner is more than 50 feet from your exterior condensing unit, we highly recommend you install a hard start kit to aid your compressor in turning on.


One of the main jobs of an air conditioner is to pump refrigerant through your system. The most difficult part of this process is the point at which your AC first starts up. At this point, it can use all the help it can get so that it doesn’t have to work as hard to circulate the refrigerant. Installing a hard start kit to aid your AC unit’s start up will make the system run more efficiently because it won’t have to work as hard. It will also reduce the likelihood of system breakdowns.

A hard start kit is simply a good investment because it will help your air conditioning unit to live longer and help you to avoid spending money on repair or replacement when the compressor breaks down.

If a hard start kit sounds like a good investment to you, call T.F. O’Brien at 516.488.1800 to learn more. We’re always excited to educate people and to answer Long Islanders’ heating and cooling needs.
