That is why I plotted climb rate vs. density altitude. I have an EFIS that gives me a constant readout of density altitude.

Service ceiling also needs to factor the density altitude(DA). Standard pressure/temperature is needed. At 14K this is 9F.
If a -20F cold day (we are winter now) then you will climb higher. Not possible in summer (+20F).
Unless you are turbocharged, and even then the critical altitude of most turbos becomes a significant factor in the teens. However N/A engines are affected greatly by changes in DA.
