Hello. Long story short, my compressor is noisy. It makes a sort of "whirring" or "supercharger" sound that increases in intensity with RPM. It does not seem like a belt or pulley sound to me and there is no sound present when the clutch is disengaged. It is louder with higher heat loads. Almost not noticable below 75 degrees ambient and low humidty.
Otherwise, the system seems to work well. It was 85 and humid today and I had a consistent 38F out of the center vent on the way to work today, max a/c. Performance does seem to degrade somewhat at idle, but just a tad.
I tested it yesterday. 80F ambient, low humidity. At idle, doors open, max a/c: 43/225 pressures, 48F @ vent outlet.
1500 rpm, doors open, max a/c: 33/200, 38F @ vent........
Static pressure was about 65/65.
Thanks for any info.

Pressures are not indicative of a fully charged system. The system should be recovered, evac'd and recharged utilizing the correct equipment to insure a correct refrigerant recharge.
The noise from your compressor is normally associated with a compressor that is suffering from lack of lubricant. The internals are operating with less than a minimum amount of lubricant. This is usually the result of a system than has lost a sufficient amount of refrigerant to reduce or stop the flow of lubricant thru out the system.
The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.
