Why won't our air conditioner cool our house?

We just purchased a 1 ton central air conditioner. We have a 985 sq. ft. bungalow. The problem is the system continuously runs when the outside temperature is 83 and the desired temperature in the house is 74. We like the house a little cooler at around 72 but the system, for some reason, is unable to achieve this. We replace the air filter every month. The air is coming out of the vents isn't cold -- more like cool. I suspect something is not right with the new unit. We replaced a 20 year old Keeprite unit. It never ran for long periods nor had trouble cooling the house to 70. The installer has used every excuse why the unit runs for the long periods but it just doesn't make sense.
