Why is there humidity in the room when air conditioner is cooling? Room feels damp.

The simple answer is no. What an air conditioner does, is cool air (obviously). When air is cooled however, it loses its ability to hold moisture. Therefore, the relative humidity (Water vapor/Capacity) of the air in the room will increase despite the fact that no moisture was added.

It depends on the BTU of the air coditioner, the cubic footage of space in the room to be cooled, and the temperature and humidity in the room. Under best conditions, an standard air conditioner can only cool a room to the mid 60's. Any colder than this causes the evaporator to ice over, clogging the air flow into the room, which causes the temperature to rise, even though the air conditioner is still running.

A room air conditioner will being putting out a haze if the air contains high levels of humidity. The mixture of cold and warm air will produce visible water vapor.

A window air conditioning unit placed in a windowless room ceases to be an air conditioner and instead becomes a dehumidifier, however, unless the condensed humidity (water) is removed from the room, it will simply be absorbed back into the room air as humidity.

The word, 'air conditioner' is a noun. The definition of air conditioner is a machine that controls the humidity and temperature of the air.

It is the humidity from the air passing through the cooling coil that has condensed on the coil. By drainig it out the humidity inside the room is reduced and you feel cooler.

If the water vapor amount stayed the same, then the relative humidity would be greater.

This is water that has condensed out of the room air on the evaporator coils of the air conditioner, and it is completely normal. If the humidity is high, one will see more water condensing and dripping from the air conditioner than when the room air is dry.

Dry Mode is a function that will reduce the humidity in the room. In this mode, as the air passes through the air conditioner the humidity will condense on the evaporator so that the air comes out drier. Reducing the humidity makes you feel cooler and more comfortable. Dry mode uses less power than cool mode.

A battery room may not require cooling, but it will require low humidity -- and for that you may need a cooling system or air conditioner.

An air conditioner mainly controls air temperature, but does also somewhat alter the humidity. A dehumidifier only affects the humidity, and not the temperature.

You will use more gas when your air conditioner is running.

No. Running an air conditioner on fan does not cost as much as running on cool.

The original principle was to reduce the moisture or humidity of the room, so that the ink wouldn't smudge in newspaper printing facilities..

While running your air conditioner, the vents should be closed so that warm air from out side do not enter into the room,which may cause damage to the machine in the long run and it will fetch more time to cool the room.

The state of temperature and humidity produced by an air conditioner.An air conditioner or system of air conditioners: a car with air conditioning.Control of temperature, humidity, purity, and motion of air in an enclosed space, independent of outside conditions.

An air conditioner DOES lower the inside humidity. Basically when the hot moist air moves over the cooling coils the the air cools and the humidity in the air condenses on the coils and the air coming out will be cooler with a lower relative humidity. So, to answer your question. Keep the AC on and it will lower the humidity inside. Also keep all windows and doors closed and try to seal up any large holes where air can leak.

A dry room in winter can affect the body and can make the heated room feel colder. Humidifiers are uses to raise the house humidity level. In summer, too much moisture from high outside humidity can make the house very unbearable. Dehumifiers can be used in addition to the humidity removal performed by an air conditioner.

The evaporator coil condenses the humidity in the air dehumidifying it.

Because a fan only stirs up the hot air while an air conditioner removes humidity as well as cools the air.

If you are running a window unit in a closed room, you will actually heat the room up. The unit needs to be able to "move" the heat to the outside air.

Room Air Conditioner...........

By bringing warm air outside the room

An air conditioner or often use AC or air con is an appliance, system, or machine designed to stabilize the air temperature and humidity used for cool in the room as well as heating depending on the air properties at a given time. using a refrigeration cycle do help evaporation for comfort cooling in buildings and motor vehicles.

Willis Carrier invented the first air conditioner in 1902. He was trying to fix a printing machine that was continually smudging ink and realized that humidity was causing the problem. So to get rid of the humidity he invented the air conditioner. He started his Carrier air conditioning company in 1915, which today is a multi-billion dollar business.
