Did you know that excessive humidity can actually hurt your air conditioner?
Humidity is essentially moisture—moisture that in our area comes with the high summer temperatures we’re all very familiar with. This moisture makes us uncomfortable, and essentially the only way it dissipates is by lowering the temperature. So, it stands to reason that you’d turn on your air conditioner and set it to the lowest possible temperature, right?
The problem with this is that it makes your air conditioner work harder and harder as summer progresses, and as a result, the AC system is strained and accumulates wear and damage. Plus, the humidity isn’t effectively removed, so you’ll still be uncomfortable.
