Numerous air conditioners are running without a proper refrigerant charge due to leakage and improper charging during installation. Therefore, there is a need to understand the performance of the air conditioner if it is not properly charged for the means of optimal operation and cost saving. This study is focusing on the usage of a used small capacity split-unit type air conditioner using R-22 refrigerant. The objective is to study the condenser performance over a variation of refrigerant charges. From the results, it is clear that the optimum refrigerant charge is 100%. The highest cooling capacity and COP were 3,330 J/s and 3.05 respectively.
