With the rising summer temperatures comes the rising humidity. What’s worse than a hot, Texas summer? A hot, sticky Texas summer. Purchasing a dehumidifier for your home can help your home find the perfect balance. While your AC does dehumidify the air as part of its operating cycle, that is not the primary function of the unit. A specialized dehumidifier might be needed if you have one of these signs: 1. Trouble cooling the house: Humid air can retain heat and make cooling a humid home more challenging. Dehumidifying your air can help your AC run more effectively and cut down your cooling costs. 2. Signs of mold or water damage: Mold thrives in humid conditions. Dehumidifiers can reduce the risk of mold developing in your home due to excess moisture. Additionally, by drying out your home with a dehumidifier, you can avoid water stains on your walls or carpet. 3. Poor indoor air quality: Pollutants such as dust and other allergens can cling to moisture in the air if it is too humid. This can make life in your home very difficult and uncomfortable for those suffering from allergies or asthma. By using a dehumidifier, you increase the air quality within your home. If you see one of these three warning signs popping up in your home, consider adding a dehumidifier to your home. For all of your HVAC needs, contact us at Spencer Air Conditioning and Heating.
