Keep It Clean
Your A/C unit has a filter. It’s thin, light, easily removable, and if you’ve never seen it then it’s probably pretty gross right now. Pull it out, stick it in the shower, and give it a good once-over with a sponge. Let it dry then put it back in—and be thankful you aren’t breathing that filth anymore. This will increase the unit’s output and lower the temp. The other half of this is keeping the coil clean. If you’re on the ground floor, then it’s pretty easy: just use a garden hose to blast some water into the unit through the grates at the top and the sides. If you’re on an upper floor of an apartment building, you’re going to have to get creative. Try using a portable, pumpable sprayer.
