San Antonio Air Conditioning Repair: Humidity Problems

Humidity is just moisture in the air. If you’ve ever taken a cold glass outside on a hot day then you’ve likely noticed how moisture will collect on the glass—this is condensation. It happens because as the warm air cools against the glass it releases its moisture. But if you notice that your home is humid, it could be a sign that your air conditioning system isn’t working that well.

Your air conditioning system cools your home my blowing the warm, moist air from your home over a series of very cold coils. As the air cools, condensation forms on the coils and then drains away. If you’re having humidity problems, it could be that your AC doesn’t have enough refrigerant which means that the coils aren’t getting cold enough. It may also be that your compressor is broken or it’s motor isn’t working well so that the refrigerant isn’t being compressed or circulated properly.

If you have a dehumidifier in your home and you start to have humidity issues you likely need to call San Antonio air conditioning repair. Your dehumidifier removes moisture from the air in the exact same way as your AC system does. The moisture it removes is supposed to drain away in a condensate drain. However, if that drain gets clogged it could prevent the dehumidifier from removing moisture—it could also cause a water leak that might damage your home.
