Your air conditioner should be cleaned and maintained properly. If it is not cleaned regularly, there are high chances of the cooling coils within the air conditioner getting dirty and so fail to function efficiently.
The space between windows, doors, etc. all allow the cool air to escape. In such cases, the air conditioner is forced to work extra or continuously in order keep the room or space cooler. This overload would eventually lead to degrading the AC's functional efficiency.
While installing and air conditioner in your home or room, always make sure that it is of the right size which can effectively meet the cooling requirements of the room or home. If the room or your home is too big but the air conditioner you have installed is very small, then again, the work to be carried out in cooling that entire space will be higher. Thus, it would have to work continuously to meet the requirement.
It’s summer season and you cannot expect the temperatures to be any lower. There would be days during which the temperatures are extremely high. During such days again, your air conditioner would have to work extra hard to maintain the temperatures of the room at a cooler level.
If you feel that your air conditioner is working hard and so it has lost it’s efficiency, what it then requires is a repair. See if you can do it yourself.
