Well boaters it’s been a long hot summer and I noticed as I walked down the docks during the week that most to all had their air conditioners running while the boat was unattended.
Letting your air-conditioning run while you’re not aboard the vessel for five or more days uses unnecessary power, wear and tear on your air-conditioning and a bit of a risk having water flowing through your boat why you’re not there.
Oh but wait there is an answer, keeping your humidity level low on the boat while you’re not aboard is very simple, check your owner’s manual on your air-conditioning unit and look for the humidity mode and/or moisture mode depending on your unit in your boat. You will find with a simple press of the button your air-conditioning will only run when your humidity level increases in your cabin, most set points can be preset by you.
Your air-conditioning will turn on and cool the cabin to the desired temperature , then it will go back in the sleep mode and shut down until the temperature rises again. So instead of your air-conditioning running 24/7 for 5 to 6 days straight, it will only run when your preset temp. is reached, this will save unnecessary use on your equipment , and the risk of water damage while the vessel is unattended.
