EasyStart™ – The most advanced & effective soft starter for all A/C applications
EasyStart™ is a one-of-a-kind, custom-developed soft starter for single-phase motors. It employs a 4-part start ramp sequence that is self-optimizing, resulting in the lowest possible start-up current. EasyStart can deliver 65-75% start current reduction as compared to a compressor’s LRA (locked-rotor amperage). EasyStart is the perfect solution that allows an air conditioner or refrigeration compressor to operate on a generator, inverter, or limited utility power when it would otherwise not have functioned. It can also be applied to air compressor and fluid pump motors.
Easy Start your A/C without buying a second or bigger generator or inverter
Run 2 air conditioners on a 30-Amp cord. (Note: Each A/C requires an EasyStart unit)
Sleep, with less noise, and cool all through the night
Run your A/C with more appliances at the same time
Add an A/C unit at low cost by putting an inexpensive EasyStart on each. Avoids expensive rewiring of the entire RV to upgrade to 50-amp.
Convenient installation kit for wiring an RV Rooftop A/C unit is available. (sold separately)
The standard version can support both 115-230VAC/50-60Hz motors, and the RV version supports only 115V/50-60Hz motors.
Has numerous specialized fault checks not found in any other soft starter to provide further protection for your compressor.
The EasyStart 364 is capable of supporting up to a 36000 BTU (3 ton) compressor. It includes a unique water resistant and UV protected enclosure with an integrated mounting flange.

The Micro-Air EasyStart reduced the start surge current of this Coleman Mach 13.5kBTU rooftop from 41.1A (measured, 54 LRA rated) to an astonishing 17.3A. This then allows the system to operate on a limited-current power source as small as 2000W, be it a generator or an inverter. All the details of the actual installation, comparison testing, and technical explanations are covered.
