Question: 

What is the ideal cooling temperature to set my thermostat?

Answer:

This is a matter of comfort versus energy usage. There really is no “ideal” temperature. The design target temperature for cooling in our region is 75 degrees at 50% relative humidity. That target may not suit everyone. The unit is designed to deliver air 20 degrees cooler than what it is drawing in, and it will continue to run until it reaches the target temperature. The lower the target, the longer the run time, and the more energy will be consumed. We recommend you find a temperature that is comfortable but does not over work the machine.
