Looks like the OP is making progress, but it sounds like the HVAC system could be a bit underpowered, especially if it's the original contractor installed version.

Since you rent, not much you can do about that, but possibly talk to landlord about zoning your HVAC system. Zoning allows you to precisely control the temperature in every room or (zone) of your home. How? By placing a thermostat in every room and an automatic damper in the duct controlling airflow to that room.

Of course that can only happen if your landlord is willing to spend some money.

Rent? You can't put anything in the wall.


One can't fix a poorly designed HVAC aside from tearing it out.. And a second floor in a house with temps above 95 degrees for weeks is never a good idea. Get a room size AC and shut the door. You'll barely know the difference in your electric bill.
