Air Conditioner Cools But Does Not Dehumidify

Air Supply Heating and Air Conditioning of Las Vegas, Nevada help our commercial and residential customers locally and in surrounding areas with a number of services including troubleshooting. Troubleshooting for inadequate dehumidification can be a challenge where the air conditioning system cools but does not dehumidify the room. An air conditioning system is the installation of a cooling unit which has too much capacity, or over-sized, for the space that is being used to cool is the most common cause of inadequate dehumidification. What occurs is that an air conditioner that is oversized is cooling the room so quickly that the system cannot shift the full volume of air across the coil that removes the majority of the moisture prior to the room dropping the air conditioner cut-off point temperature.

Symptom of an Air Conditioning with Inadequate Dehumidification

An over-sized unit is likely to be the problem if an otherwise normally working cooling system cools the room temperature quickly but the room humidity stays high. Below you will find a few suggestions to rectify the air conditioner’s ability to adequately dehumidify your home.
1) Equipment is operating efficiently: Assess the temperatures to ensure normal dropping during system operation. If it is not up to par, a professional from Air Supply Heating and Air Conditioning is needed for repairs.
2) Check for any abnormal moisture sources: Inspect the condensate drains to see if the unit is producing water, if condensation is dripping, the humidity is originating from another source. Search for leaks into the building including the wall or ceiling cavities.
3) Air conditioning unit controls adjustment: Though less common, has a professional check out the fan speed or other controls that might improve A/C unit dehumidification.
4) Increase the cooling load: You can easily achieve making the cooling more increased by making an area larger by keeping the doors open for example.
5) Adjust HVAC system ductwork: Increasing the return air to the air handler from additional building areas to adjust its load and improve its dehumidification by making changes in the duct system could be the remedy to inadequate dehumidification.
6) Replace an oversized unit: Replacing the air conditioning unit to match the size of the area it is designated to cool might be the only real option. With Air Supply Heating and Air Conditioning assisting you, our specialists will use the proper mathematic equation to find the right sized unit.
7) Supplement dehumidification: In some cases, depending on the involving circumstances, it may be necessary to add a separate free-standing or portable dehumidifier to the system to reach the temperature and humidity targets you need.
