Is your home feeling uncomfortable and humid?
by: Island A/C Team

You are running your air conditioning unit as usual (same settings and everything), yet the air feels different. Your home is not as comfortable as it used to be. Does this sound familiar?

The above problem is usually due to extra moisture present in the air. The extra moisture creates that sticky, uncomfortable feeling that just doesn't go away no matter how high you run the air conditioning.

The extra moisture often comes from non-conditioned air coming into the duct. This happens when there is an opening in the air duct in your attic and non-conditioned air gets into the duct, and out into your home. This causes your air conditioning unit to work longer and harder to overcome to impact of the leakage of warm air.

The leak in the air duct can happen a few different ways, the most common being aging of the adhesives used to seal the different parts of the duct system, and damage caused by a rodent. Either way, the longer the leak stays un-repaired, the more wear and tear on your system, and the more opportunities for breakdowns.

The best way to extend the life of your air conditioning system is to have it maintained by a trusted air conditioning company, and call as soon as you notice a change in your FPL bill or if you home starts feeling humid and uncomfortable.
