    Should be 10-12 for a proper chill effect

    chilled return pipe with cool condenser - still getting 21C at the vents - the unit is really in bad shape

    In that state I would be expecting to see 10 or 11C at the vents.

    Just today I checked it on my car it is mehran 2008 with after market AC. What I did was first drove the car for 15 kms due to some work and almost for an hour in 40 degrees at around 12pm. I parked my car in garrage. The AC was on all the time. The mehran has 3 speeds and my cars Ac speed was on 1. After around 3 minutes the cars tripped and at that time just before Ac tripping temperature around AC vents was 10.5 degree. If I had kept that on 2 or 3 it might have gone to 7-8 degrees. The parking has a ceiling and the car was let to idle at around 1500-2000 rpms

    The car was just standed in shade after drive of an hour, and the bonnet compartment was so hot that I could not touch the bonnet opener and bonnet stand. That was just to give you an idea, because I have driven a coure and I felt its AC to be awesome although the temperature was not hot at that time, but the major parts that get hot in mehran are all insulated in a coure. So if should cool better than mehran. You should get your AC serviced

    i have gotten AC servicved and gas was recharged also condenser has been changed. its work is satisfactory but not chilling at noon. now there are few things. as car is heated hot air mixes with cool air. or gas has not been recharged to required level. or maybe my thermometer is bad. anyway i will go to some other mechanic and get second option.
