What part of Florida are you in? Here in Jacksonville, we keep ours about 76 degrees, but I understand it should be set at 78 and left there.

I think 80 is too high for central Florida's humidity. Again, I think 76 - 78.

Ah, you didn't get a VS blower then.

Too bad, you could have set your stat to 80, and still had humidity control.

And saved a lot on your cooling bill.
