Pressures are changing all the time depending on the load, ambient temperatures, cleanliness of the unit, etc, etc, etc.

Shovad buddy,you really shouldn't be gauging up on your residential unit,if you do not expell all the air from your gauges it will wind up in your unit,a bad thing.

If you gauge up in wet weather,you my entrain moisture,a very bad thing.

If you gauge up and the gaskets on your gauges are bad,you'll leak refrigerant,not only a bad thing but an EPA violation,subjecting you to a fine.

Please find a reputable guy (Angies list might be a start) and buy some piece of mind.
