I live on the 3rd floor in an apartment and I have sky lights in my living room. Recently my air conditioning bill has been through the roof, and so I put shades up on my sky lights to keep the light out. Thinking this would help keep the costs down, it did not. I have kept my thermostat at 76 because anything higher makes it extremely hot in here. Any advice on what else to do? I keep the ceiling fans on constantly, and try to turn the air off on cooler days. I need advice on how to keep the costs down because it is getting to the point where I can no longer afford these high bills! I have tried to find the filter but where I assume it would be located, has no filter to change. (And yes i have called maintenance, THEY ARE SLOW! It has been over 2 months and they have not come, I call everyday!)
Ps. I have cats, so turning the air off while I am not home is out of the question.
