To what temperature can a window air conditioner cool your room?

It depends on the BTU of the air coditioner, the cubic footage of space in the room to be cooled, and the temperature and humidity in the room. Under best conditions, an standard air conditioner can only cool a room to the mid 60's. Any colder than this causes the evaporator to ice over, clogging the air flow into the room, which causes the temperature to rise, even though the air conditioner is still running.

Dry Mode is a function that will reduce the humidity in the room.
