Heat Pump—Heating Cycle
The proper method of charging a heat pump in the heat mode is
by weight with the additional charge adjustments for the line size,
line length and the other system components.
Charge Using Weigh-In Method (Fixed Orifice/Thermal
Expansion Device Systems)
Use this method if the system is void of refrigerant, or if the
outdoor ambient temperature is cool.
1. Locate and repair any leaks.
2. If necessary, recover the refrigerant from the condensing unit.
3. Conduct a leak check, then evacuate as previously outlined.
4. Weigh in the charge according to the total amount shown on
the condensing unit nameplate.
NOTE: If weighing facilities are not available or if the condensing
unit is being charged during warm weather, follow one of the
other charging methods.
IMPORTANT:
Refrigerant charge adjustment will be required for line set
lengths greater than 15 ft (4.6 m) and for non system-
matched evaporator coils.
The condensing unit is factory-charged with the proper
refrigerant charge amount for a matching evaporator and
15 ft of refrigerant line. Refer to the condensing unit rating
plate for the exact amount of this factory charge.
Adjustment of the refrigerant charge will be necessary based
on the system combination and line length. To adjust the
refrigerant size for increased line lengths, add the following
amount of refrigerant.
