technical reason why ac condenser/compressor can't run in cold weather?
have a ductless system where the unit mounts on wall in the room and the 2 refrigerant lines run from it to the outside unit. On a particular system it's operating environment says outside temperature must be greater than 55°F for cooling. Can someone explain the reason why?
I don't mean specifically for this make/model, but what technically would cause an air conditioning system to have an operating condition where outside temperature needs to be greater than 55°F for it to work?
Assuming there is a temperature sensor on the outdoor condenser unit preventing it from operating below 55°F,
what would happen if that was disconnected or removed and the unit operated in colder conditions, down to 32° and down to 0°F ? Why would the unit not work or fail?
And what parts/features make it possible for an outside condenser unit to operate in cold weather?
Please don't just say "cold weather kit". looking for a technical reason.
