Most Florida residents have heard this saying before. What’s bothering you when it’s warm outside may not be the temperature; it could be the humidity. But have you ever thought about all of the ways that high humidity levels can affect the inside of your home?
Your comfort is partly dependent on maintaining comfortable temperatures, but this isn’t the only thing to pay attention to when it comes to indoor air quality. The humidity can have a major impact on your comfort, making you feel hot and sticky even with the AC running because it’s a lot harder for sweat to evaporate with moisture in the air.
The air conditioner does dehumidify your home, but it uses a lot of energy to do so. You might turn down the AC to an inefficient temperature, lower than you need, which can raise your energy bills quite a bit and fail to really keep you comfortable. However, a separate dehumidifier in the HVAC system could do the work at a lower cost to you.
Excess moisture in the air means moisture can settle in your home. And when water sits out for too long, you run the risk of developing a mold problem. Getting the humidity problem under control can help to keep you healthier, reducing the chances of spreading mold and mold spores and helping those with allergies and asthma to breathe easy.
Schedule whole-home dehumidifier installation to get relief from your discomfort, lower your bills, and feel better about the quality of the air you breathe. Get in touch with local heating and air conditioning contractors to get a system that works for the whole house, rather than a portable unit that might not do a sufficient job.
