Hot and sticky are two very common words heard around here at the heart of summer, and the relief we all feel when we enter our air conditioning is palpable. However, you aren’t the only one feeling the heat – your air conditioner is, too, and the more humid it gets, the harder your AC has to work to achieve the comfort you need and want. But there is a way you lessen the load on your air conditioner while also improving your comfort: install a whole-home dehumidifier. The experts at Climate Masters can integrate a whole house dehumidifier with your existing air conditioner or HVAC seamlessly, and with a humidistat function on your home’s thermostat, you can easily and conveniently control the humidity inside your home with just the touch of a button. Why consider a dehumidifier? Here are some reasons:
- Less stress on your air conditioner – humidity holds heat and your air conditioner’s job is to remove both heat and humidity. This means when there’s an excess of either or both, extra stress is being placed on your air conditioner to work. A stressed air conditioner can be more prone to malfunction, breakdown and premature aging.
- Healthier air – contaminants love to cling to the moisture molecules in the air, so removing the excess moisture from the air can help keep it clean.
- Reduces potential for mold and mildew growth – mold and mildew thrive in moist environments, and they can grow on fabrics, paper, and even in your ductwork.
- Increases comfort levels – the effect of excess moisture combined with air conditioning is an indoor atmosphere that is cold and clammy. Removing the excess moisture helps ensure that your indoor air is cool and dry.
