I also live in Florida, and never see temps over 221 at the worst case.
If you are seeing 235, that is a tip-off you are having cooling system issues of some sort.

Check for coolant level, check hose clamps if snug, check for coolant leaks both at hose fittings and radiators (look for coolant residue), and make sure you change out your coolant every 2 years.

Check that both of your fans spin freely without rubbing on the radiators, and without squeaking or binding, which can indicate fan motor bearings going bad.
Make sure that both fans rotate when activated.
