Hi I'm Brian and I'll be happy to help with this!
Yes, the static or standing refrigerant pressure should be close to its saturated pressure/temperature of the outdoor air. The indoor coil and indoor temperature will have some effect on this but very little if the unit hasn't run in days. The saturated pressure for R22 at 90 degrees is nearly 170psig. The saturated temperature of R22 at 90psi is about 55 deg. F! Unless your indoor coil was a block of ice from running without airflow or the system running low on refrigerant for a long period of time, chances are very good, your system doesn't have enough refrigerant in it to condense into liquid anywhere in the system. It is probably VERY low on refrigerant!
Let me know if you have further questions about this.
Very good then, I'm glad I was able to help clear that up. Please remember to rate before leaving! Thanks much for using Just Answer! Have a great day!
