    Increasing the cycle times (on/off) periods your AC runs can maintain the in-air temperature you desire while potentially saving electricity. If you keep the fan on to continue circulating air, you probably won't be able to feel a temperature difference from the on and off times.

    You could also try running an energy simulation, but it might be tedious to input the 20-minute intervals with this software: Paragon Robotics LLC
