A few nights ago it rained a whole lot.
In the morning I noticed that there was a lot of condensation on the windows.
This is pretty normal. I mean, I do keep the air conditioner set pretty low at night. However, when I noticed that the condensation was inside of the windows, and not outside, I knew we might have a problem. It is not normal for it to be that humid in the house. I especially shouldn’t be that humid when the air conditioner is on. Air conditioners remove humidity after all. I decided to just let it go and pass it off as a weird occurrence due to the weather. However, the next few mornings the condensation was still on the inside of the window even though we got no more rain. I decided it was time to call out the air conditioning professionals. They came out and looked over my air conditioner. It did need some general A/C maintenance but they said that doesn’t really explain the humidity levels in the house. The HVAC company is suggesting that we get a dehumidifier installed along with the air conditioner. They said that, with the humidity in this area, that this is a pretty common issue. It happens a lot where windows and doors are because humid air gets in. That is when it dawned on me, I had opened all of the windows last week and forgot to lock them. Maybe air was still getting in. I will try that tonight. If it is still wet in the morning, I might have to get that dehumidifier installed though. I just don’t understand why it would act up this year though when it never has before.
