Keeping the blower speed to minimum speed helps.

Am not sure how many are aware of the fact but in the blower speed 1,2,3,4. The most chilling is done in speeds 2 and 3. If you switch the blower speed to the max, does not mean it will do more chilling. It will blow more air, that's it. The chilling is quicker in low blower speed than the maximum. The compressor never stops or trips off like the ACs we have at home.

Also, I don't understand why are people not able to bear the chilling done by the AC, we anyways have temp control.

Reducing power for AC to decrease load on Engine. I don't think there is a way to so that, otherwise all commercial vehicles+hotels and restaurants would start doing that to reduce elce bill.

So, now I feel a noticeable 'surge' in power every now & then when driving with the A/c on. I don't think I feel the compressor switching on & off though. Any reasons why?

The compressor never switches off unless the AC itself is switched off.

There is no way to reduce the load on Engine. It has become a habit for me, whenever I have to overtake a vehicle quick, I switch OFF the AC and then switch it on after overtaking is done. This acts like NITRO on lower gears

And how and when does the compressor restart? Maybe its too much to expect this feature is my humble Nano.
