I’m trying to debug the central AC unit behavior in my apartment, and to that end I setup some home weather monitoring
Consider the following example, where you can see three distinct phases:
1 - AC is turned off, ambient temperature with some windows open. The living room has much better air flow than the office which has the window closed so the 2 degree temp diff makes sense.
2 - AC is turned on at 14:12, set to cool at 26C, duty cycle starts (as can be heard by the compressor), temps start to drop, as does humidity. I believe the BME280 sensor measures relative humidity.
3 - Compressor duty cycle stops, humidity starts to climb back even above previous levels???
Does this behavior make sense? I have a gut feeling that the air here is more humid that it needs to be, but I have failed to prove it thus far.
Any thoughts? cc: @jonathan
