Tip & How-To about Heating & Cooling
(of an air conditioning system) alone can have a substantial impact on system
operation costs. A few percentage points of over-or undercharge can raise
electricity consumption significantly and shorten the life of the compressor."
You must invest
in the proper tools, training and methodology to accurately charge an Air Conditioning system so that it works at maximum efficiency. Using the Thermocharge
method to charge your air conditioning systems to the exact charge needed will save
hundreds to thousands of dollars in electricity and maintenance costs over the years!
Skilled technicians will "Thermocharge"
your air conditioning system with an exact refrigerant charge. This procedure
produces an exact charge . . .not approximate, but exact.
The Thermocharge method requires special equipment and training to use.

Here the tech is using the sling psychrometer to obtain the indoor humidity and
indoor air temperature. He will double-check his figures with the electronic
thermometer laying on the table. He will also verify the readings with an
After recording the indoor humidity and temperature the tech will go to the outside

procedure all over again from the beginning.
This Thermocharging method of charging an air conditioning system takes time
and patience, but it guarantees that theair conditioning system will operate at
peak efficiency all season long.
