Question about SHR

From mfg's specs, my a/c - coil combo has a SHR of .77.

According to my heat calc, the calculated SHR of the dwelling is .81.

Would it be worthwhile to increase airlow, say 5 - 10% to bring the unit's SHR more in line with that of the dwelling?

Since doing so would reduce coil temperature, would it just take longer (running time) to maintain the same comfort level?

Question about SHR

If its maintaining temp.
Leave the blower speed where it is.

Unless, it reducing your humidity to less then 40%.
