Can I paint my home interior walls without Air Conditioning?

Hi everyone!

I need to paint my interior walls (all of them and ceilings) inside a Florida-based home. Temperatures and humidity are high. I have work being done on my AC unit that is not operational but I am ready up against a deadline to get the painting done in order to progress a larger reno project.

I was wondering if it was okay if I painted the interior without any AC going and opened up the doors/windows? I do have a dehumidifier, several fans, and a portable AC unit that I can use to help regulate the temperature.

Anybody have advice on whether this is okay or not?

The biggest risk I have seen is that it will just take the paint longer to try if it's humid.

Thanks for any help!
