Check your local housing statutes. In some locations, landlords have to provide window and door screens as well as window shades/blinds in rental units.. Also, review your lease regarding mechanicals, and look for the old "as is".

Here is a link to the Florida landlord/tenant laws.

Have you notified your landlord in writing with return receipt of the air conditioner issues?

You should check your lease agreement that you signed with the landlord. It will specify who is responsible for this type of repair. From my experince, it is usually landlord's responsibility.
I suggest that you ask the landlord if he is willing to purchase window screens. If you saw that there were missing screens before you signed the contract, and you have never mentioned this to the landlord, he may refuse to purchase or reimburse you for such.
I hope this helps.
