    the nameplate will list

    compressor amp draw
    condenser motor amp draw
    min. circuit ampacity
    max. circuit ampacity
    and a few other tid bits

    but there is no listing on the nameplate for the sum of the added compressor and condenser amps!

    Not all unit tags are the same. Especially older units. Good point though. I take the blame.
