Does the air in your home sometimes feel sticky or damp?
Do you have to run your air conditioner at a much lower temperature than your neighbor to achieve the same “feel”?
Do you have to turn your thermostat down lower at night to be able to sleep comfortably?
Sometimes, when you call an air conditioning contractor out to help you with these issues, the contractor you call might check your air conditioner, see that it’s working, and charge you their diagnostic fee to just tell you, “Your air conditioner is not the problem.”
Some a/c contractors will tell you that you need a bigger air conditioner, and they just so happen to have one they can sell to you.
Other contractors may tell you that you need a smaller air conditioner, and they just so happen to have one they can sell to you.
These contractors may understand air conditioners, they obviously don’t understand air CONDITIONING.
Some of the factors contributing to humidity or mugginess in homes are pretty basic. Homes are not air tight. There are holes in houses that you are unaware of. Unconditioned air from outside comes in through these holes, and the air is humid, as it normally is in Tampa Bay. AC contractors don’t test for holes. Restrictive duct work can cause negative pressure, which will intensify humidity issues as well. AC contractors don’t look for restricted duct work.
