The spider you are describing is what my Mom always called a grass spider, and I've heard a couple of other names for them. I've never been bit by one, and can't honestly say if they are proned to biting or not. I always catch them in a jar and put them back outside. I think they are probably looking for a water source when it gets this hot and dry, because they always start coming in the house about this time of year.
