The Easy Start allows the ac to start in phases. Like the fan first, than compressors, etc. This reduces the required start up amps on the generator/battery/electrical power sources. If you live in Florida. There is a person on FB Travato who changed his ac unit to the Houghton Belaire. It has a setting on it for humidity. Basically dries out all air. He swears by it and runs it daily. I just upgraded to this unit about a month ago. It has come down in prices since he purchased it 3 years ago. No need for Easy Start with this unit. It has variable compressor/ fan so starts in phases.
