  • It would depend on the humidity, if there was a breeze moving through, the outside temp, things like that. I've had it almost 90 in my house but with very low humidity, and had no problems, but I've had it 75 and high humidity and was ready to turn it on. Too many other factors vary my answer ;).

  • 80-82 depending on the breeze and how well the attic fan is moving the air. We can't afford to keep the house super cool so even with it on it's set at 80.

  • Ours got turned on when it was 73. It's 5-8 degrees hotter in our bedroom than any other room in the house, so it's nearly 80 in there by then.

  • We don't have air conditioning so it's not an issue. We have fans and use those.

  • 80 on the thermostat which means it's closer to 90 upstairs
