we recently purchased our home and the central air unit seemed to be just fine it wasnt until warm weather hit and we tried to actually cool the house that we found out that it doesnt really cool the house at all. at first i noticed that the condensation was draining into the furnace and had to unplug the drain outlet, that fixed the drainage but didnt help cool the house any. the air blowing from the vents is very cold and the air generated in the plenum is ice cold it seems to be pushing an adaquit ammount of air but it just isnt cooling the house. the house is a three bedroom ranch with two additional bedrooms added to the basement. all of my vents and returns are located at6 floor level. the basement stays cool even without the air. there is a open foyer type doorway to the basement from the kitchen. i have provided as much informatiuon as i could, might my problem be related to my cold air returns should i leave them closed when running the air? should i close all but one centrally located return? should i open them all? what is the best format any help would be appreciated. ive received a lot of suggestions from hardware and suppply stores but no results.

ok i guess i was being impatient. after closing off the basement vents and letting the air conditioner run over night the house is now cool. very cool. i guess i was expecting results too quickly.

thanks for all your help
