Thermostat and humidity settings when away in coastal FL
Hello we have a condo in coastal FL that we use several times a year. I am most concerned about mold, not temperature. What should we set thermostat temp and humidity to when it is unoccupied?
We have an Ecobee Smart Si thermostat that allows us to use ac as dehumidifier. Essentially, if I understand it correctly, when the thermostat temp trips the ac, the thermostat will monitor the humidity. If the humidity is above our upper limit, it will run the ac to decrease the humidity and continue to run ac up to 5 degrees below our temp set point. So, if we had upper level of humidity set at 56%, and temp at 82, when temp reached 82, ac would run until humidity was below 55% or until temp got to 77.
