Humidity Control with Your Cincinnati Air Conditioner


Your Cincinnati air conditioner isn’t just a tool for cooling your home or business – it also works to keep your indoor humidity levels in balance! This is an important component toward creating a comfortable environment, and if your air conditioner isn’t doing this vital job, you could suffer in more ways than one.

How air conditioners control humidity

The refrigeration system of your air conditioner allows heat and humidity to be pulled from your indoor spaces as well as creates cool air. Your cooling system’s evaporator coil works to condense the water vapor in your air supply, turning it into liquid so it can be removed and drained away.

Is my air conditioner removing humidity properly?

A common symptom indicating air conditioner troubles is higher humidity levels and discomfort indoors. If your air conditioner isn’t functioning properly, the moisture will make it feel as though it is warmer inside, as moisture holds heat. You’ll feel uncomfortable and your air conditioner will be stressed trying to cool your living areas. In addition to the discomfort and increased wear and tear to your system, moisture problems can lead to mold and mildew growth, which can be damaging to your health and your home or business.

Add a dehumidifier for superior moisture control

Sometimes moisture problems are not caused by an air conditioner malfunction. In these cases, another source or activity could be adding moisture to your indoor environment, such as outdoor air infiltration, a hot shower or cooking. A whole home dehumidifier could benefit you in this case, effectively removing the excess moisture from inside.

Is your Cincinnati air conditioner not keeping your humidity levels under control? Call Nelson Comfort for expert AC service as well as quality installation for whole home dehumidifiers. Let us develop a moisture control solution which will keep your family comfortable, healthy, and safe.
