Lexington Air Conditioners Help with Humidity Control

Jun 2, 2016
Uncomfortable Humidity Levels At Home | Climate Control
Air conditioners in Lexington go above and beyond just cooling homes and businesses; they also work to pull excess moisture from your indoor air supply. Humidity makes the air indoors feel warmer, so removing it is essential to keeping you comfortable inside. If your air conditioner isn’t doing a good job, you could be putting yourself at risk.

Evaporator coils remove humidity

The evaporator coils are the cooling system component which works to remove excess moisture from the air indoors. As air passes over, the coils cause water vapor to condense. This pulls the moisture out of the air, and it drains into the condensate pan. The water is discarded through your system’s drain line.

Symptoms of ineffective humidity control

Humid indoor environments are often a tell-tale sign that your air conditioner is malfunctioning. If it isn’t removing moisture, you’re likely to experience a chilly, clammy indoor environment. Since excess moisture can make the air feel warmer, your air conditioner will overwork in order to cool your indoor spaces, resulting in wear and tear to your equipment and discomfort indoors.

Visible mold and mildew growth are another sign your air conditioner may not be removing moisture correctly. Higher humidity levels create an ideal environment for their growth. Exposure to mold can be hazardous to your health, and mold and mildew can be very damaging to your home or business and its contents.

A dehumidifier will help

Some homes and businesses have moisture problems not related to air conditioner issues. Activities, number of occupants, construction quality, and other factors can cause moisture to rise inside. Installing a whole home dehumidifier can remove this excess moisture, leaving you with balanced humidity levels throughout.

If the humidity inside your Lexington home or business is too high, Climate Control is here to help. We can effectively diagnose all air conditioning issues and perform quality repairs, as well as set you up with a whole home dehumidifier that could be the answer to your humidity problems.
