This question already has an answer here:
I'm a little sensitive to cold temperatures and will often ask my roommate to increase the temperature of the air conditioning as he usually has the remote control.
One time, I said, "Dude, can you turn up the air con?" He thought I was asking him to increase the fan velocity of the air conditioning.
I thought of multiple ways of shortening this sentence myself. Here are a couple of my attempts:
"Can you make the air con hotter?" But this would mean that I would like to increase the temperature of the air conditioning itself and not necessarily the surroundings. Also, it doesn't sound very right... to me.
"Can you make it hotter/warmer? Again, 'sounds a little strange. But most importantly, my roommate might be confused if he isn't thinking about the air conditioning at the time.
I still can't think of a perfectly smooth and chill way of expressing this sentence. Please help me out!
