To maintain the temperature setup on an air conditioner, the compressor will use more or less energy based on the outdoor temperature. Therefore, there is a need to understand the performance of the air conditioner if the outdoor temperature is varied. In this research, a used small capacity split-unit air conditioner using R-22 refrigerant is used to study the effect of outdoor temperature on the performance of the air conditioner. From the results, it can be understood that lower outdoor temperature requires less work from the compressor. The cooling capacity and coefficient of performance drop as the outdoor temperature increases.
