Managing Humidity in Your Home
Keeping Your Home Comfortable
Humidity is a major player in home comfort and your air conditioner and dehumidifier can play large parts in helping you manage the level of humidity in your home.
If you have a well maintained air conditioner that is functioning properly it will remove the humidity from your home. If your system is not working correctly and can’t remove the humidity from the air you could continue to turn the temperature down and never reach an ideal level of comfort.
Humidity causes temperatures to feel warmer. If your system cannot effectively remove humidity from your home you may never feel comfortable.
Signs that you have too much humidity at home:
- Moist air
- Damp or musty smell
- Fog or condensation on your windows
The best recommendation for managing the humidity level in your home is to install a dehumidifier. This is a device that works with your air conditioner to remove moisture from the air before it is circulated through your home. It helps to keep your home comfortable all summer long.
