    the nameplate will list

    compressor amp draw
    condenser motor amp draw
    min. circuit ampacity
    max. circuit ampacity
    voltage
    phase
    hertz
    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.
