A lower-cost and more reliable system is achieved by applying the new rules for sizing refrigerant lines with R-22 Trane scroll compressor split systems. The manufacturer should size the line whenever possible, but since some of the techniques presented in this broadcast wouldn't have been considered good practice in the past, it's important to understand why. The purpose of this broadcast is to learn how Trane has refocused the piping practices to achieve a less-costly and more reliable operating system; discover the traits of effective refrigerant piping; understand when to use the various line-sizing tools; and learn when and when not to use hot gas bypass.
