Thermostat settings on your air conditioning system are most times directed by personal preference as well as energy saving preference. For example, the Energy Star program recommends a setting of 78 degrees for conserving energy and staying comfortable while you're in the home - plus, programming your thermostat for higher temperatures when you're away during the day. Others might be more comfortable at 75 degrees, or lower. Again, it's a balance between your personal comfort and your desire to save on energy usage. Then there are those very unfortunate times when the temperatures in your house are not at all what you want them to be.

Please take a moment to look at this report, Why Your Air Conditioning System Needs Prep Work for Summer's Long, Hot Run.
