I just bought a townhouse in Palmetto, Fl. This is my first experience with central air in a humid enviroment. I will not be there for several months at a time. There seems to be some debate as to which is better to keep mold and mildew in check. I have read that the humidistat will kick in at pre-set level and that a timer that runs the a/c unit for two hours a day is another way to go. The builder said to just use the thermostat. Which is best?

i would look into what is called a dehumidifier which takes moisture out of the air with out much cooling. a dehumidifier is less costly than running your a/c unit. a humidifier adds moisture into the air which is what you don't want to do. but a dehumidifier will need a way to get rid of the water that it will collect . you can use what is called a condensate pump.let me know if this helps you or if you have any more question.
