Your rights would be governed by the commercial lease agreement you signed. Normally, this would be considered a material breach for which you could apply different types of remedies. For example, you could give a deadline notice by which the LL must fix the problem or you will call a repair contractor on your own and get the job done and deduct the cost of it from the rent owed. Or, you could give a similar notice and then terminate the lease and go elsewhere. Or, you could apply a reduction to the rent based on the diminished value of the leased premises for no A/C during the summer.
But the point is that you must look to the lease to see what remedies you have for a material breach. The ones I have listed are some of the most common remedies.
