When should you Run your Air Conditioning in Florida?

How you should manage your Air Conditioner when you’re not home.

when should you run your air conditionerWhen you are not home during the day, your air conditioner should be off. Depending on how hot it is near you, we usually keep our air conditioner programmed to 84 because after that it begins to be too uncomfortable to even walk into the home.

However, when we keep our AC to 84, more often than not it won’t reach anywhere near there during the day.

What temperature you should keep it at when you’re home?

When you are home, the temperature is entirely up to you. I’m not the kind of person to leave the air conditioning running 24/7, so I will usually drop it to a few degrees below the current temperature.

what temperature should you have on when youre asleepThis will activate the unit so you can feel the cold air coming in without forcing it to reach a number that might be insane. If you want the house to be colder, we recommend bringing it down 5 degrees at a time until you reach the level you’re happy with.

What temperature you should have it on when you’re asleep?

While you’re sleeping, it is recommended by members of the healthcare profession that you keep the temperature between 60 and 67 degrees.

The biggest component of initiating sleep in your body is bringing your body temperature down. So the colder your house is, the easier it is for you to find that comfortable temperature for sleep.
