Check refrigerant charge

There are several ways in which to check for proper charge of the systems refrigerant. The best way is

to check the systems superheat during the cooling cycle after the system has run for a min. of 15 minutes and the

outdoor temp is at 95 degrees. Checking for the proper charge is very important. If found too low the system, the

system will have low efficiency and excessive running of the compressor. This could also damage the compressor over time.

If found over charged the compressor amperage would be excessive and damage could occur.
