What does it mean when the low side is high and the high side is low?
Just so, what should the high and low side pressures be?
The low-side should be near 30 PSI at 90 degrees Fahrenheit or less. Pressure that is too much lower or higher shows there is a problem. On a properly working system, high-side pressure will be about twice the ambient temperature, plus 50 PSI.
Furthermore, which is low pressure side AC? The low side line of the system will have a larger diameter metal pipe than the high-side. The low side service port is usually located between the AC compressor and evaporator. The low side service port will have a black or blue plastic cap that needs to be removed.
Also question is, which side is the high side on air conditioning?
The high side, or discharge line, will be the line connected to the compressor from the bottom or lower position. It will not be wrapped in insulation and will be warm to the touch. This is where freon exits the compressor as a liquid.
What should the gauges read on 134a?
For a low pressure gauge, a reading of 25 pounds per square inch (psi)to 40 psi is optimum. On the other hand, a high pressure gauge should read between 225 psi and 250 psi.
