comment How can I change the bulb in this light fixture?
Is it spring-loaded and just pulls down a little hard, perhaps?

comment How can I determine why my A/C runs all day?
@TheEvilGreebo I was clear, but I can see how it may be confusing. In my comments, I always used "vents" meaning the "blowing" kind for the conditioned air. I used "return vents" (or should have just said "return") for the "sucking" kind. I took the comment from churnd as understanding you properly since he mentioned them as "higher up" on the wall which is typical for an air return (and the direction the louvers point doesn't matter for a return since it's not really protecting it from rain or anything inside the house; it wouldn't affect airflow either way).

You don't need to compare it to how it was when the AC was working better, just re-open the vents on the lower level temporarily and see if there's less flow on the upper level vents while the fan is running. If there isn't a noticeable difference, it would indicate an issue with your ducting or fan.

Whether the return vents point up or down won't matter as long as they're not blocked by anything. When you close the vents in the lower level, you should notice an increased airflow from the vents in the upper level. Are you seeing this increase?

comment How do I detect and repair faulty wiring?
If this spotlight is part of a low-voltage landscape lighting system, the non-contact tester will not indicate power anywhere on that system. Use a multimeter to see if the socket shows a voltage across the terminals when the system is on.
