Does anyone know of the maximum length for the tubing on a split 2 1/2
ton a/c system? Thinking of installing in a 925 sq ft. house, but
would like to mount the outside unit on the opposite side of the
house, as the airhandler.
Generally 50 feet is the maximum without capacity loss. If you run 100 feet
of refrigeration line, expect 4% - 10% capacity reduction. [Even if you
increase the size of the suction line, there will still be some capacity
loss.] Check the manufacturer's spec. sheet.
