From the vents or from an AC line? If you're tracing your lines, and you feel heat coming off of the smaller lines, that's normal... refrigerants gets heated and superheated as it cycles.. the operation of AC is a series of heat exchanges.If you're getting it out of your vents, then there's a condition in your system which is preventing the AC system from providing sufficient cooling. It could be a number of reasons why, and AC diagnosis really isn't a do-it-yourself task.

How much heat energy will be required to lower the temperature of 2.67kg of steam from 282 degrees Celsius to 105 degrees Celsius?

You mean how much heat energy will be lost/transferred as you are losing Joules here. All in steam, so a simple q problem and no change of state. 2.67 kg = 2670 grams q = (2670 grams steam)(2.0 J/gC)(105 C - 282 C) = - 9.45 X 105 Joules ----------------------------------- This much heat energy must be lost to lower the temperature of the steam.
