Why Your Air Conditioner Makes Your Home Feel Damp

Why Your Air Conditioner Makes Your Home Feel Damp

Air conditioners typically remove humidity from the air during the summer; however, there are instances where a home feels cold but DAMP when the AC is running. This usually points to the blower motor in your furnace or a grossly oversized AC. A fan motor that is set at too high of a speed for your AC will cool the air, but moves it too quickly across the evaporator coil above your furnace.

This will negate its ability to de-humidify the air, creating a cool but damp feeling in the home. An older or less expensive furnace often contains a PSC blower, or a fixed speed ECM motor. These motors move the air, but lack the ability of a Variable Speed ECM motor to dehumidify in summer.

A Trane furnace with a variable speed blower will slowly ramp up and ramp down its speed at the beginning and end of a cooling cycle to focus on dehumidifying the air. Trane call this Comfort-R.

Ray and Maggie Harloff, Priceville, ON

We had an emergency job to fix our heat pump at our home. I checked out some hvac contractors and decided to go with Waterloo Energy because they had the best reviews on the internet. They came out fast and did a diagnosis. I was very grateful that they didn't try to oversell me on a bigger repair before they even knew what the problem was. I liked that they were so honest and upfront about the repair. They were friendly, fast. I would highly recommend them because they are professional and solid company to work with.

I would highly recommend Waterloo Energy Products; they did an outstanding job and took care of us! They Installed a Geothermal System and in floor heating. They were always available to answer all our questions about our Geothermal investment. What I liked best is that the owner came to our home to inspect the project. The team at Waterloo Energy is great to work with and did everything they said they were going to do! Thanks a billion for the outstanding customer service! Cheers
