Living in the southern area of the country, I rely on my central cooling system for approximately ten months of the year. We endure uneven temperatures in the triple digits, & the air conditioning runs constantly. Along with the heat, both of us deal with actually high humidity levels. Since overly moist air feels warmer, it encourages lower thermostat settings. An air conditioning is not designed to combat humidity. Blasting the air conditioning just leads to overcooling, costly electric bills & a sticky indoor environment. There’s still the worry over mold & mildew growth, injure to house furnishings & a high population of dust mites. Overly humid conditions are also perfect for bacteria, viruses & all sorts of health threats. Headaches, sore throat, itchy eye, sneezing, coughing, congestion & aggravated symptoms of pollen irritations & asthma can all be attributed to overly high humidity levels. To improve the health & comfort of my home, I’ve invested in a whole-house dehumidifier. It works in tandem with the cooling system, pulling moisture out of the air & allowing customized control over humidity levels. Since installing the dehumidifier, I’ve been able to raise the thermostat setting & lessen the workload of the air conditioning. My daily utility bills are much lower, & yet my house is far more comfortable. My family sleeps better at night & has more energy during the day. The dehumidifier was not overly costly, & the Heating & A/C corporation installed it without any major disruption to my home. It operates quietly & requires only yearly service. The dehumidifier has greatly improved our quality of life.
