My AC ductwork is condensating

My AC unit and the Ductwork is only a few years old and I have never had a problem with it. But this year it has been very humid and the Ductwork is dripping water onto the walls and floor of my basement. I want to avoid calling the folks who put the system in to keep costs down. Anyone know a cheat and effective way I can fix this?

I don't know about "cheat"ing but you can install a dehumidifier in the basement or insulate the ducts.

Yes lower the humidity and the issue goes away.
