I went to work on a rooftop AC on a moter home today.
It lost its charge,found the leak fixed it.Vacumed it out and was ready to charge it.I thought it was a R12 system I looked at the plate it said it was R22.
It is a very simple setup Its a hemetic sealed compresser the kind you would see in a refrigerator runs on 120 volts ac.Its a capillary tube setup.
My problem is I dont have any R22 and dont want to go to the big exspence of buying a 30lb jug of it.
Just wondering what would happen if i charged it with R12 which i do have plenty of that.
Or mabey one of you guys know of something else I can use?
It holds 20 OZ of R22
What can I do If I have to I guess I will get some R22
What would do?
I sure wouldn't put 12 in it...liquid gold...
The lowest price gas on the market is currently R22, that's what you need
try R12 and wind up eating the job
Bite the bullet and get ya a drum of 22, You will need it more and more as time goes by. Like your liquid gold R12 there is no experiation date.
