I am in a condo, and there is a water cooling tower on the roof.
My air conditioner has been on all day, and can't get the condo below 80 deg. Cold air is blowing strong out of the vent nearest to the a/c, but the other vents don't have much coming out.
Could it just need more freeon, or do I likely have scale built up.
