[Woodworkers] Climate Controlled Shops

I live in San Antonio so we don't have much need for heat, but without AC
it is near impossible to work in the heat and humidity - especially as I
get older. The only issue I have found about trying to do a big and rapid
drop in temp, is when the humidity is fairly high, I can freeze up the
coils faster than I can defrost them. Slow increments seems to help reduce
the issues with freezing up the coils to the point of inoperative AC. Not
sure if that helps, but that is my experience here.
