Mini Split units and soft start

1495 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  user_12345a
Are there Mini Split units that come with soft start built in? Or, can you add it if needed?
I am asking because I have limited electrical panel options for new AC circuits. I know that soft start can be used to lower compressor start current by as much as 70%. I am hoping this will give me more wiring options.

most mini-split compressors are inverter driven and starting characteristics depend on the firmware on the controller.
