My air conditioner does blow air, but doesn't seem like it is a cold as should be. I need to keep it on full blast high and it gets mildly cool. I have my a/c unit replaced and rechecked and my garage said it is working properly. But I don't believe it is; do I need to bring it to another garage to doulbe check. I have been using this garage for many years-but I don't feel like my a/c is working like it used to do as far as getting very cold.

Second opinion would not hurt. Vent temp should be @40 degs

It depends on the outside temp at the time but if it's over 85 you should see in the mid 50s from the center vent on high blower with the doors closed with sitting still. It will drop a few morew degrees going down the road.

Thank-you; but how would I check the temp coming from vent?
