ac thermostat

Here are the readings from my car today using a laser and digital thermometer. As you can see it was 88 degrees in Lauderdale-by-the Sea at 3:30 today. The 36 degree was laser thermometer pointing at outer ac vent, the 26.9 degree was laser thermometer pointed at internal ac duct, the 46.5 degree was digital. I think I would trust the laser thermometer more. These pics were taken at idle, the temp gets colder when driving. I would definitely recommend the electronic thermistor, without it my evaporator used to freeze up after driving about an hour. the digital may need to be calibrated.
