I am literally dying in our beach house… I technically have central air conditioning, but there must be something wrong with! No matter how cool I set our thermostat at, the AC can only make our beach house around 78 degrees; there must be something wrong with the cooling system right? I don’t think everyone deals with this problem. I have tried looking up what to do to assist the air conditioner, and nothing has worked. Online said that it could be a cooling filter issue. If the AC filter is clogged with dust, the air conditioner does not do the task as well. It is sluggish, exhausted and not as effective. I looked into it and our air filter was fine. I still cleaned the air filter anyway, just being hopeful there though. Another plan I found online was to vacuum out the inside of the cooling system. I cleaned the fan blades, wiped the cooling coil and cleaned out the condensate drain too; cleaning the AC equipment seemed to do actually nothing to its effectiveness. The most recent thing I tried was messing with the refrigerant levels. I added more refrigerant thinking it might act similar to fabric softener: it might deliver our cooling system that extra kick. Nope, I still am perspiring to death due to not entirely working AC. I am running out of ideas on what to do for myself. I know that I can’t go on with the current cooling situation. I sweat through clothes and sheets every night; eventually I will need to be comfortable in my own house.
