Igray. The grates under the bottom step are the return air vents for the furnace, not for cooling the basement. Or so I am fairly certain of.

We also had problems with our rear air not cooling properly and also in 80 degree humid days this winter the rear air would drip water on the carpet. I had it two different dealers work on the problem.

What A/C brand do they put on them units. That's alot of amps for 15,000 btu unit. you should be in the area of 11 for the compressor and 1 and 1/2 for the fan motor (blower) so full loaded should only pull about 12.5. There is something wrong. You should also be getting at least a 15 degree temp drop from your R/Air temp to your outlets temp.

One of the dealers changed the thermostat and the Air Conditioner seal.. Neither worked. it got to a point that we had to put a bowel on the floor to catch the water. I read some posts on other forums that too much air transfer will cause the air conditioner to freeze up, quit cooling and drip water. So I also blocked about 3/4 of the vent off under the stairs. Success!!! No more drip. And the the air temp at 88degrees went down to 73.. I know that is the return air for the heat and I Will probably have to un block in in heating season. But it is to much return air transfer for the AC,s

The last dealer checked the amperages and the outlet air temp. All were good.. That is why he decided to change the seal. He thought the water was coming through the seal from the outside, which was not the problem.
