If your evaporator and condenser coils have not been cleaned in a year or more, that should be your first step. You'll be surprised at the efficiency you will gain!

Thanks, Glenn.

I took some photos around the inside (easier than climbing inside, harder to forget what I saw). There's some surface corrosion on the heat exchanger - doesn't look like any perforations yet. There is a fair amount of dust on the evaporator, so it looks like some cleaning is in order.

Unfortunately, the evaporator drip tray is showing some rust-through. So, while it may be OK for now (cooling season is ending), It's probably not going to make it through another summer.
