Why is my house so muggy when A/C is on?

Summer has finally arrived here in Western New York, after what felt like one of the longest, wettest spring times ever. Air conditioner season is finally upon us! As a home inspector, I’ve been asked by a few homeowners in the Buffalo area “why does my A/C make my house so humid?”. As it turns out, there are at least 5 reasons for this common problem.

This question at first seems strange, because air conditioning by design is supposed to remove humidity from the house.
