Air conditioner = Condensation (Water Damage) to Computer? Tags: Desktops Computers Components Last response: October 4, 2012 3:54 AM in Components Share kraver0 October 4, 2012 3:34:05 AM I am very paranoid about this... and a little confused. Is turning on the air conditioner bad for the hardware in my computer due to condensation? I live in a really small single-room (dorm at college) and it gets a little hot in my room if I don't have the AC on. I live in Chicago, so it's usually cold outside. My desktop is NOT placed right next to my AC vent; however, since it's a small room, you can say that my desktop is sort of close to the vent. I really want to get this straight, so I'll never have to be paranoid about this issue again: Can turning on the air conditioner cause condensation (water damage) to the components of my computer?
