Question about Hitachi RAS-09UH Air Conditioner

Running an air conditioner in the winter.
Generally they have a low pressure switch on them that won't allow it to run when the pressure falls below about 60 psig, at 22° F refrigerant R22 pressure is about 45 psig.
So to run it at that temperature you will have to disconnect your low pressure switch and install a jumper wire across those terminals and install a low ambient fan cycling switch kit (that you can get at your local ac parts house) which will keep the head pressure up when unit is running.
But by bypassing the low pressure switch you won't have any protection if you have a refrigerant leak or your indoor blower fails
or filter or evaporator gets dirty or plugged up.

Some air conditioners have a thermostat that will not allow the compressor to run below a certain out side tempature as it will cause liquit to come back into the compressor(called slugging) and damage or destroy it.
