Try setting it to a comfortable temperature and letting it run overnight to give it time to cool the room and all its furnishings down to the target temperature. Then you can decide if you want it a little cooler or can deal with it a little warmer.

Miss Joann...

Thanks for the link to your reading material. Your quote was exactly what the "tip sheet" stated. Again it makes no sense to me as a A/C only does two things, which are, cool the air by removing moisture (dehumidify) and a fan that circulates the air in the room. To your original question as to temperature setting, that is a personal preference. I have two large (5 ton) central units, one for upstairs and one for down stairs. Generally they are both set at 75*... sometimes cooler. Anyway, I would suggest you find what is a comfortable setting for you and go with that. In the end that is all that matters. One thing I have found however, that will help you determine your setting is the power bill that comes every month!! Everytime I get one I start "screaming" raise the thermostat, raise the thermostat!!

Enjoy and stay Cool
