charging in low temps


I know that, but even with water temperature of 65 and 110 psi that would tell me the system is charged properly

you are the only person in the world who can tell if a system is fully charged based on condenser water temp and the pressure of an unenergized system.

A system can be under charged, and still have the same pressure as the ambient sat temp. Tells you nothing about the charge.The system must be running to tell if its charged right or not.

CHARGE TO 15 DEGREES F. OF SUBCOOLING.

I promise this will work, just make sure that your temps and pressures are accurate and you are reading them in the correct location.

15 in heating mode is a bit much on some marine applications.

I don't think he has taken his readings for line temps at the right places.

unless I am missing something...the condenser sounds like it's scaled up.
