A de-humidistat is an energy saving device that is designed to control humidity/mildew, as efficiently as possible, during our hot Florida summers. It is generally used in homes where the residents are away for an extended time during the year.
Your air conditioning system is an excellent de-humidifier. The de-humidistat controls your central air conditioning system in a way that keeps the house as dry as necessary when the house is unoccupied. When the house is occupied, the de-humidistat should not be used, and should be left in the “ON” position. In this position, it will not affect the operation of your system.
Its purpose is to detect clogged air conditioning condensate drains and shuts off to prevent water damage to floors, walls and ceilings. This is easy to install, uniquely designed, and will not stick or rust. The special designed steel mounting bracket clips firmly over the edge of most drain pans and can be installed on primary or auxiliary drain pans. The patented Magnetic Reed Switch allows it to be installed off-center and still perform correctly.
A contactor is a vessel where two streams interact, for example, air and liquid.A contactoris an electrically controlled switch used for switching a power circuit, similar to a relay except with higher current ratings. A contactor is controlled by a circuit which has a much lower power level than the switched circuit.Contactors come in many forms with varying capacities and features. Unlike a circuit breaker, a contactor is not intended to interrupt a short circuit current. Contactors range from those having a breaking current of several amps and 24 V DC to thousands of amps and many kilovolts. The physical size of contactors ranges from a device small enough to pick up with one hand, to large devices approximately a meter (yard) on a side.
Contactors are used to control electric motors, lighting, heating, capacitor banks, and other electrical loads.
Hard Start Kit
A hard start kit is designed to assist your compressor on start-up. If your inside air conditioning coil is located more than 50 feet from your outside condensing unit, you probably need a hard start kit to assist your compressor when it turns on. You see, your air conditioner works like a pump circulating the refrigerant throughout your system. The harder the pump has to work the less efficient it is and the more likely it is to break down. A hard start kit helps your air conditioner when it needs help most, when it first starts up and has to begin the pumping process. The addition of a hard start kit will extend the life of your compressor, which could save you from the high cost of a repair or replacement.
A lightning arrester is a device used on electrical power systems to protect the insulation on the system from the damaging effect of lightning. The typical lightning arrester also known as surge arrester has a high voltage terminal and a ground terminal. When a lightning surge or switching surge travels down the power system to the arrester, the current from the surge is diverted around the protected insulation in most cases to earth.
