Good Humidity Control is Crucial In Our Climate

April 18, 2011 | Blog

Residents of Corpus Christi are familiar with humidity; in fact, we spend most of our summers looking for ways to avoid humidity. It’s easy for most people to assume that their air conditioning system will take care of their indoor humidity control problems; however, that is not actually the case.

Although air conditioning systems do remove some moisture from the air, moisture removal is not their primary function.  They are mainly designed to lower the temperature and because colder air cannot hold as much moisture in it as warm air can, they do remove some.  This is why people associate air conditioning with less humidity.

In addition, because of this association, homeowners tend to think that higher SEER-rated air conditioners do a better job at removing humidity. The opposite is usually true. Most super high-efficiency air conditioners actually do a poor job at removing moisture.  Because it takes more energy to remove water from the air than it takes to simply lower the temperature, the super high SEER systems are designed to lower temperature and remove less moisture. That is one of the major ways they get the higher SEER ratings.

The new higher efficiency inside coils are much larger and have many more fins on them to make them more efficient.  This causes them to take much longer at the beginning of the cooling cycle to get cold enough to start removing moisture and allows them to hold a tremendous amount of water on them once the system shuts off.  Then when the system starts back up again, this moisture that you have already paid to remove is re-evaporated back into the home.  The cure for this is to install The AC-Enhancer on your system.  This will help your system to start removing moisture right away at the beginning of the cooling cycle and eliminate the re-evaporation of moisture at the end.  No matter what efficiency your central air conditioner is, it would benefit you to have an AC-Enhancer installed on it.

Great company. Contacted my current AC company to check on my warranty before charging me anything. Saved me a bunch of money and headache if dealing with anything. Would definitely recommend them and use them again.
