Humidity and Central Air Conditioning Systems
If your air conditioning system is working efficiently, it will remove the proper amount of heat and moisture from your living area, resulting in the comfortable environment you want.
If not, you may not achieve the comfort level you desire for your home, regardless of the temperature setting you are using.
When humidity is high, it makes sense that A/C systems have to work harder to keep the home cool. If you’re dealing with an older, inefficient or wrong-sized system, it may not be able to handle the job. Your home may end up feeling warmer than it actually is because the air is holding extra moisture that isn’t being properly removed.
What’s more, the system will be working longer and harder without providing the desired result. This adds wear to the unit and can result in higher utility bills.
It’s important to know that a larger capacity system of air conditioning will not necessarily produce the cooling effect that you want in your home. It’s imperative that your system is sized properly for your unique home by a Green Apple Plumbing & Mechanical professional.
If you are using your central air conditioning system, but not getting the results you want, you can safely assume one of the problems is excess moisture in the air. Some obvious signals that you’ll experience if this is the case include:
- The air in your home feels moist
- There is a damp or musty smell in parts of your home
- Your windows are foggy.
These factors can tell you there is too much humidity present and you should take action to adjust humidity levels. Green Apple Plumbing & Mechanical are the experts you can trust.
