Same loh! If taking power off the engine, even though at boost you can save some energy by turning the compressor off......lol

Normally from what I heard about house air conditioners, they are rated at 1 or 1.5hp. If our car's compressor drains away 1 to 2hp, we can still feel the power loss although the amount is so low.

You did NOT just compare home aircon with car aircon..... they run on different systems even though concept the same. Apala

different term of horsepower. AC hp is cooling capacity.

My 4G15 Auto 3 Speed, the problematic air con compressor significantly reduce the torque or speed by 40%. But after changing the air con compressor, I didn't face or feel the reduction anymore.

That bad? Mine was not that bad yet but I might say the drain can be like maybe 10-20% of my car's power. It certainly did not feel as much as almost half.
