Our office is air conditioned, however my staff is complaining that it is either to cold or to warm. I have been setting the AC temperature at 72 degrees, some say 71 others say 73. What is your recommendations?
Thanks Ray Marshall

Re: Air Conditioning settings
Sorry, but this is a world old problem for ages, ever since there were fat peoples and skinny peoples.. A large person answer is they has more insulation and needs more cooling and a small person has less insulations and needs less air,,,See where I'm going with this? Our answer is to add a dummy thermostat-----(disconnect the control wires to the original thermostat and add the control wires to a new thermostat, out of sight at the return duct close to the unit----or-------add an adjustable grill over each cubicle so they can adjust it them selves to suit each person, and YES itcan be done ...!

Whole-house fans help cool your home by pulling cool air through the house and exhausting warm air through the attic.
Set your thermostat as high as comfortably possible in the summer. The smaller the difference between the indoor and outdoor temperatures, the lower your overall cooling bill will be.
Avoid setting your thermostat at a colder setting than normal when you turn on your air conditioner. It will not cool your home any faster and could result in excessive cooling and, therefore, unnecessary expense.
Consider using an interior fan in conjunction with your window air conditioner to spread the cooled air more effectively through your home without greatly increasing your power use.
Avoid placing lamps or TV sets near your air-conditioning thermostat. The thermostat senses heat from these appliances, which can cause the air conditioner to run longer than necessary.
Plant trees or shrubs to shade air conditioning units but not to block the airflow. Place your room air conditioner on the north side of the house. A unit operating in the shade uses as much as 10% less electricity than the same one operating in the sun.
sounds like you need to wash your condenser coil. Sounds like your compressor is kicking out on high head pressure. Once it cools off it starts cooling again take it out and give it a bath don't get the electric wet.
Maybe you have it set on dehumidifier mode instead of air conditioning mode. That happened to me with mine too. And turn off your timer (if it has one) or it will shut off after a while and you will forget why.
Due to the many different questions I see about Air Conditioning, I am including this overview to help us better understand each other for trouble shooting. A basic air conditioning system has a Thermostat, Air Handler or Furnace Fan and a Condensing unit. In a split system, the condensing unit (Condenser) is separate from the furnace and usually in the back yard. When working properly, it blows hot air. It connects to the cooling part of the system by 2 copper lines. One large line and 1 small line. The part that cools the house is the "Evaporator" and is usually on top of the furnace inside the square metal box (Plenum). When the Air Conditioner is running, the large copper line should be cold and the smaller line should be warm. Common signs of low refrigerant are that both lines are the same temperature and/or frost or ice has built up on the large line at the condenser. The thermostat will normally display room temperature on till it is touched to change the setting. It could have a "Span" setting as well as times and temperatures. The operating "span" of MOST residential thermostats is 40 to 90 degrees. That means you can set it as low as 40 degrees and no higher than 90 degrees. It probably has a fan switch also. When in the "ON" position, the fan will run constantly, 24 / 7, but the condenser will still cycle on and off as needed to keep the house at set point. If you have a suggestion to include in this paragraph, please let me know.
Please read the above paragraph and see if we can narrow the possibilities. How long does it stay off? Does it restart by itself? Does it blow any cold air while running? Thank you. Roger
ok i will try if there is only one return then you need one move the stat= thermostat to a area where temp is about same as the outside rooms. and have a retrun in each room near to the back of the room away from windows. if can not move the stat then move the returns. do have cool air on the windows if not you need to move them the air duct! or are there any supply in the middel room? if there are then ether remove them or greatly reduse the amount of air to that room do it at the unite if you can, a Dapper.Basic idea here is you find your Heat or cool load which is the windows. so need your air on them. if you leave your return where it is are the door touching carpet it should have about 1" to 1"1/2 off the bottom so air can to the retrun. Hope this helps Paul
