    Good info - thanks.

    I have one more question related to the move - the contractor wants to capture most of the R22 in the compressor, cap it, do the move and after re-connecting it, add some small amount of R22 if needed ( the current lineset is at least twice as long as the new one will be ).

    Is it a safe for the compressor to compress store the refrigerant by compressing it inside the compressor ( he mentioned that from factory the unit comes pre-charged with equivalent amount of 15' ) ?
