Thank you. I would like a few temperature readings from the a/c lines with an infrared thermometer if you have one. With the system on can you tell me the outlet temperature of the line at the compressor. The temperature at the inlet of the condenser. The temperature at the outlet of the condenser. The temperature going into and out of the expansion valve. And the temperature of the suction line.
