Should you shut off your central air if one day during the week the temperature drops or should you leave it on? I was under the impression that once you put on your central air you should set a comfortable temperature and leave it at that. I was told by a friend that you do not operate this as you would a wall unit. That everytime you open your windows and doors you let humidity in and when you put your air back on it has to work that much harder to get it out. Is this true? I live in a condo complex and I see some people shut theirs off if we get a couple of cool days and than put it back on when we get the heat back again. Thank you for any imput.

I know what you mean. If the humidity is very high outside then you may let in humid air, but if it cools to a nice temp it is good to let that air in to get fresh air in the house.
