I heard that it is not good to run the central AC if the temps out side are below 65. It's 63 here, it's raining but inside its 74 and humid. I can't open a window because it will become more humid and wet. I do have dehumidifier a but raises the indoor temp. Can I run my AC without harm?

My a/c in the house is not cooling past 73 degrees during a hot day and it takes a few hours for it to even get there. I have twice called for repair and they only looked at the outside unit. Once i was told it is just too hot and the other he put a pound of refigerant in the system and said it was good. My unit is about 10 yrs old i live out in a desert community it is a 3 ton unit

We just had a new Lennox 5 ton XC16 2 stage AC (NO HEAT)

We just had a new Lennox 5 ton XC16 2 stage AC (NO HEAT) installed with matching variable speed CBX32MV air handler. Even though I live in Hawaii where it's in the low 70's at night, the system seems to run longer at the higher fan setting than I would like. Now it is cooling and dehumidifying well, the electric bills are less than old unit, it's just the cycle issue and thermostat that I question. The usual temperature settings are 77 day, 71 night. The thermostat is a 2 stage Honeywell 6000, which has been set on the 2 cycles/hour setting (3 recommended), prefer 2, not sure if it's done anything with AC or gets overided by temperature. It has a non-adjustable 1 degree tolerance. So my main questions are: 1) Which of the 4 air handler dip settings is ideal. One setting goes 50%, 80%, 100% if needed, then 50%). Other settings are 2)80%, 100%. 3) 80%, 100%,100%, 4) only 100%. Also, there is a setting where is lowers or raises air handler fan by 10%. How would that effect anything? The system is a bit oversized to me (2 story 2000 square foot, 5 ton) but if anything, you would think the high speed/2nd stage would not be on much, unless some algorithm is controlling it from the thermostat or air handler setting????? Thanks (confused home owner)
