We bought a 1962 ranch style, cinder block construction home two months ago. As the weather is heating up, our air conditioner can’t keep up. It’s 100 degrees outside today and a disgusting 86 degrees inside, despite the air unit running constantly since early this morning and a dozen fans circulating throughout the house. It literally feels cooler on the porch than on the couch.
We’ve had two experts look at the unit and both said it’s in good condition. A thermometer held at the vent confirms that the incoming air is indeed a crisp 72 degrees. Can anyone recommend the best course of action? We are debating whether an attic fan or additional insulation will have the most impact. Of course our funds are limited so I want to spend money where it will have the most impact.
