Yes, that’s right. In fact, humidity is as an important factor as temperature. I have three things I take into consideration before shutting off the AC. Temperature, humidity and wind. If the temp and humidity are perfect, but there’s no breeze to blow the perfect air into the windows, then I leave the AC on.
If the temperature is fine, but the humidity is too high, I leave it on. Yesterday, all three things were working perfectly together. The temp and humidity were low and there was a perfect breeze blowing it straight into our windows.
Yesterday it was 74 degrees, a nice breeze and a little less than 50% humidity (which feels fine). Today, it was 76 degrees but the humidity was 75% so I turned the AC back on and it has been on all day.
Sorry to hear about your neighbor. That must be miserable. But allergies played no part here. It was all temperature related. If a guest was traveling and did have that kind of allergy, they’d be very smart to verify with the host that they could leave the AC on all the time. If they had told us something like that beforehand and I agreed to it, then I would have left the AC on with no complaints. But they haven’t said a word about allergies.
