Troubleshooting: A Heat Pump That's Not Cooling
With an outdoor ambient temperature of 86°F, your
elderly customer in this situation is in immediate

MSAC Hotline: Proper Charge in Low Ambient Temps
What is the best way to determine proper charge
for a mini-split with only 20°F–25°F ambient? I
don’t think I’ve ever had to hook my gauges up a
mini-split in this kind of weather. I was thinking
maybe this one is low on refrigerant. I wasn’t able
to gain access to the roof on initial call to see what
kind of components the condenser was equipped
with, as far as what kind of fan cycling method or
if it had a variable-speed compressor, which would
make me even more unsure of how to determine if
this thing is charged correctly.
