Do I need a kickstart?


I noticed while cleaning the coils on our garage rtu that it has a txv in it. Even though it has a scroll, I've read where it is still a good idea to have a hard start kit on them. Opinions?

The unit is a 2 ton Tempstar 12 seer gas pack. Thanks.

Won't hurt. But if its a 12 SEER, then its 7 or more years old already. So doubt it needs one, or will help much.
