Evacuating the connected pipes
The outdoor unit is loaded with sufficient R-410A refrigerant. Do not vent R-410A into atmosphere: it is a fluorinated
greenhouse gas, covered by Kyoto Protocol, with a Global Warming Potential (GWP) = 1975.
You should evacuate the air in the indoor unit and in the pipe. If air remains in the refrigerant pipes, it affects the compressor.
It may cause reduction of cooling capacity and malfunction. Refrigerant for air evacuating is not charged in the outdoor unit.
Use Vacuum Pump as seen in the picture.
• W
hen installing, make sure there is no leakage. When recovering the refrigerant, ground the compressor first
before removing the connection pipe. If the refrigerant pipe is not properly connected and the compressor works
with the service valve open, the pipe inhales the air and it makes the pressure inside of the refrigerant cycle
abnormally high. It may cause explosion and injury.
1. Connect each assembly pipe to the appropriate valve on the outdoor unit and
tighten the flare nut.

Charging the refrigerant under conditions of liquid by using a liquid pipe
R-410A is a mixed type of refrigerant. It is necessary for recharging under conditions of liquid. When recharging refrigerant from
the refrigerant cylinder to the equipment, follow the instructions below.
1. Before recharging, check whether the cylinder has a siphon or not.
There are two ways to recharge the refrigerant.
Cylinder with siphon
Cylinder without siphon
Siphon
 Charge the refrigerant standing the
cylinder upright.
 Charge the refrigerant turning the cylinder
upside down.
• If R-410A refrigerant is charged with gas, the composition of the charged refrigerant changes and the
characteristics of the equipment vary.
• During the measuring operation of refrigerant quantity added use electronic scales.
If cylinder doesn’t have syphon, upset it.
