Its about 95 here as well, with 96% humidity.

It feels more like a sauna than anything else.

well I went the last two nights without my AC'* in.
but Not tonight. I just went to the basement and brought up two of them.
that should at least cut down the humidity for sleeping tonight.

By the way, we're on a need to know basis, and that was to much info.

I think my home A/C is to small for the house, therefore it just can't keep the heat down. It cools down during the night but during the day, it doesn't stop running and the temperature actually starts going into the low 80'* at the end of the day.

Like you said Don, at least it keeps the humidity down.

Mine is experiencing issues.... Its a 4 Ton unit... I am having issues with air flow, They came out to look at... No Charge to me... and it will be fixed Friday at the tune of $125 Us... LOL...

But for now I'll have to live with about half the efficiency, But its still 79 in here so thats good.... In a couple of hours when it cools down some more it will be back to 76-77F...

Usually mine will run 5-8 Minutes and shut off... But I'll be back to normal soon...lol
