When the humidity reaches the very high levels as we are experiencing now, we have homeowners that become concerned that their AC units are not performing well and worry there is a problem. Most of the time that is not the case. The fact is very high humidity levels cause AC units to work harder to cool and remove moisture that have crept into the home. Just as we find it harder to perform at peak capacity when working outside during humid days, our AC units also work harder under the stress of humidity.
A properly maintained AC unit is designed to remove moisture from inside the home, but excessive humidity makes this job harder for just about any unit. Older units are especially susceptible to the stress of hot, humid days. Thankfully, this is usually a temporary problem and, as the humidity declines, the unit will work more efficiently.
If you notice what seems to be excessive moisture in your home, such as unusually damp or musty areas, a feeling of moisture lingering in the air or excessive fog on the windows most of the time, it may be time to call the professionals at Cogburn’s Heating and Air. Our techs can properly diagnose any potential problem. It may be that your AC unit is just slightly low on refrigerant or an older refrigerant.
