We moved into our home last Sept...and never had a need to use the A/C. I do know, however, that it did work--it was on the times we went to see the house (June/July)as well as tested during the home inspection.
I turned it on this morning. Wasn't needed really, however, my wife works nights as a nurse...it's much quieter/more comfortable for her to sleep during the day with the A/C, rather than open windows, when possible.
I closed all the windows, and turned it on, when I first got up, to allow it to run a little before I left. I checked the vents, and the cool airflow was VERY weak.
I had the t-stat set to 70-F...the lowest it reached, after an hour of running, was 75-F.
I was actually COOLER outside , about 66-F, when I left.
Could the outside temp have a bearing on the effectiveness of the A/C? Thanks
