    I can't see how the refrigerant "checked as full" if you can't get the house down to 76 when outdoor temp is at 80. Without more data we can't expand much on what you've given us. I'd get a second...

    I'd want some diagnostics done on the HVAC installation concurrent with building envelope improvements (good for you the latter is on your radar screen). Specifically, if you have duct leakage, which...

    Sensible Room Load/1.08 x (Room temp - Supply air temp)

    So, in the OP's case this would be 3000 BTUH sensible gain/1.08 x (75-55) = 139 CFM

    Otherwise I'm thinking building pressurization/depressurization scenarios combined with leaking ducts on both supply and return side.
