Make sure that the condenser is in good working condition. The condenser is normally found outside the house. This is what keeps the liquid in the unit cool through its coils. If the coils are cool, the water in it will be cooler as well. In order for it to cool the coils, there should not be anything that will block the air from getting in the condenser. Remove leaves, branches and other things that may block the vents. Nothing should block it within one to two feet.

Regularly check your air conditioning system too. Change your filter regularly. A clean filter is essential to ensure that you breathe a clean air. Have it serviced and checked by professionals too.
