    If I lowered the CPH on my Honeywell FocusPRO TH5000 from the current setting of 3 down to 2 would that help by creating fewer cycles, but longer run times?

    Trane TAM7 ComfortR

    Is the ComfortR setting "on" typically the preferred setting in a hot/humid state like Florida? It seems to do a better job taking the humidity out of the air.
