Air Conditioning Electrical Accessories

These products include items required for installation, including a safety shut-off switch for outdoors and outdoor weather-proof wire whips. Also, some products for servicing AC systems are found here.
  • Electrical Disconnect
    • A disconnect is a safety on/off electrical switch mounted on the home near the condenser or heat pump. It is required by electrical code, and is a good idea for safety and system servicing purposes.
  • Electrical Whips
    • Electrical whips are wires in a weather proof casing for outdoor use. They are used to connect the 220 volt power to your outdoor air conditioner or heat pump. A typical installation requires two electrical whips. Whips come in two wire size thicknesses (gauges), #10 gauge or #8 gauge and are used depending on which system size and efficiency you choose.
  • Hard-Start Capacitors
    • This product is used for starting air conditioner or heat pump compressors (both reciprocal and scroll type) that need an extra "jolt" of electricity to get started.
    Equipment that needs a hard-start capacitor:
    • Heat pump or condenser split-systems that have a thermostatic expansion valve (TXV) installed on them.
    • Old heat pumps or condensers that are mechanically stuck and not operating.
