## The Amount of Refrigerant to Be Added

The amount of refrigerant that is shown in the table below is factory-charged to the outdoor units.
The amount necessary for extended pipe (field piping) is not included and must be added on site.
Outdoor unit model
Amount of pre-charged refrigerant in the outdoor unit (kg)
Amount of pre-charged refrigerant in the outdoor unit [lbs-oz]
(1) Calculation formula
The amount of refrigerant to be added depends on the size and the length of field piping. (unit in m[ft])
1) When the piping length from outdoor unit to the farthest indoor unit is 30.5 m [100 ft] or shorter
Amount of added refrigerant (kg) = (0.23 x L
Amount of added refrigerant (oz) = (2.48x L
2) When the piping length from outdoor unit to the farthest indoor unit is longer than 30.5 m [100 ft]
Amount of added refrigerant (kg) = (0.21 x L
Amount of added refrigerant (oz) = (2.26x L

Round up the calculation result to the nearest 0.1kg. (Example: 18.04kg to 18.1kg)
Round up the calculation result in increments of 4oz (0.1kg) or round it up to the nearest 1oz. (Example: 78.21oz to 79oz)
