    I have an old 4 ton package unit for my entire house. I initially had problems with it and I had to install a large hard start kit for it to keep voltage up to start the unit.
    I am now going with 2 goodman units(upstairs and downstairs units)
    CPLT 30/ AEPT036 down and
    CPLT 24/ AEPT030 upstairs.
    My voltage to my house drops whn I start the old unit. The lights actually dim. Everything has beeen checked in my breaker box and the utility company just has issues in my neighborhood.
    Should I put hard start kits on these 2 condenser units.
    If so do you know the part numbers I should ask for and install??

    As long as they have scroll compressors starting should not be much of a problem. Scrolls dont seem to have high start amps

    Both of those systems have Copeland scrolls and bleed type TXVs, so they are not supposed to need start components.

    Personally, with the voltage issues, I would install either PTC start assist or a KickStart capacitor/relay.
