When a technician checks the subcooling temperature, they must first determine the manufacturers requirement. On the data plate of the air conditioner, a subcooling temperature will be displayed. If there is no data, a technician can assume the subcooling temperature to be 10 degrees.

The formula to determine subcooling is Saturation temp – Liquid line temp. You will need guages, temperature clamps and a temperature pressure chart to convert the numbers.

  1. While the system is running, document the high side pressure and convert it to temperature
  2. Second, take the temperature of the liquid line
  3. Subtract the liquid line temperature from the saturation temperature.
