Keep it there for five minutes and note the temperature.
Do the same thing at the return vent.
The air coming out should be 14 to 20 degrees cooler than the air going in.
An air conditioner that’s not cooling to those levels could be low on refrigerant or have leaks.

How do I check the temperature of my car AC?
How to Check Your Auto AC Temperature –
What should the temperature differential for air conditioning?
You should see a temperature difference of 14 to 20 degrees between the air duct and the return air. If the difference is less than 14 degrees, your air conditioner may be low on refrigerant.
What temperature should auto AC be?
35 to 48 degrees
How cold should the air be blowing out of the vents?
Well, there’s not a universal, fixed temperature your AC should always be blowing. The temperature your AC puts out is relative to the temperature you set on your thermostat. So even though there’s no single ideal temperature, you do want a 16°–22° F difference from the supply air and return air.
What temperature should the air coming out of AC vents be?
So if the air in your home is 85 degrees, for example, your air conditioner can lower your air’s temperature to about 65 degrees. If your air conditioner lowered your air’s temperature any more than 20 degrees, the air coming out of your vents would be frigid and uncomfortable.
Why does AC come on with heat in car?
It is used to cool the hot compressed refrigerant back to ambient temperature as it comes from your compressor and uses the air your car is traveling through to do that. Like having a blocked condenser, having broken cooling fans can cause a lack of cooling at your condenser and could cause your car AC blowing hot air.
How do I make the AC in my car colder?
start your cars engine, turn the blower fan to the maximum speed and then turn on the A/C by pressing the ac button. Open all the windows in your car and select OUTSIDE air mode to allow the blowing air to push the hot air out of your car and the ac system itself.
Should car air conditioning be on all the time?
You should run your car’s AC for ten minutes in every couple of weeks. Even if you do not want your car to be any cooler, the experts advise that you should turn it on every now and then in the winter. Running the AC allows the coolant to move around the system.
How cool should my house be if it’s 100 outside?
They recommend that when it’s 90 degrees outside, you should try setting your air conditioning thermostat at 80 degrees or higher. And when it’s 95 to 100 degrees outside (and higher), you should set your thermostat at 85 degrees or higher.
What is the maximum temperature differential for an air conditioner?
A good rule of thumb is during the hottest days when the dial reaches 100 degrees it is best to set your AC to somewhere between 75 and 80 degrees.
