Re: [DML] Re: What temperature should AC be on normal setting?

Room temperature change (delta T) will be the same in both cases. What I 
think you are getting at is the temperature off the coil. Slow air will 
be cooler but less is moved. Fast air will be warmer but more is moved.

In a room, with a 12,000 BTU heat exchange via a heat pump, the 
resulting room temp will be the same regardless of the airspeed over the 
coil. The system removes 12,000 BTU.

The question at hand is "what maximizes the cooling capacity of the heat 
pump, fast air or slow air?
