Maybe this is a silly question, but I'll ask all the same.

We're about 75% through our renovation project, with the most looming task left is drywalling an upstairs addition. We had an A/C unit installed, and other than grates over the returns and vents, it is completely ready to go. Is there any reason to not run the A/C at this point? It's getting awfully hot and would be nice to have some relief, especially at night. Our contractor said we'd be ok - just not run the A/C while we are sanding the drywall and to replace the filter when all the renovations are complete. Does that sound right to folks out there?

Thanks!

You can also find cloth 'filters' for the vents that help keep out construction junk and would be a good idea. Look at one of the warehouse hardware stores.
