Can you please advise Make and Model or A/C

Generally speaking, the range for operation is far higher and far lower than the 16C you mention, it would rate in the middle of the expected range for operation

If you mean -16C, we'll need to check the Range with the Manufacturer to be certain

Either way, the details would be helpful
