What is the air conditioner contactor upgrade process?
To upgrade from the standard contactor to the SureSwitch, you must first make sure that it is
appropriate. The rating on the sureSwitch is 30 amps full load which will replace just about all of the
contactors in newer residential ac systems but some of the older systems have compressors that draw more
power than that. Also, the unit will replace all single pole contactors in ac or heat pump units but there
are rare occasions where it will not work to replace a two pole contactor.
Once you have ensured that the air conditioner contactor upgrade is appropriate for your system, the
process is very easy at it uses universal mounting and has a wiring adapter. You can purchase the
SureSwitch from Amazon and, by watching our contactor replacement
video, you can easily do it yourself and save.
