Humidity is as much a part of Georgia summers as fresh peaches and barbeques. The great thing about your air conditioning system is that it helps remove humidity, but during periods of excessive humidity (which can be frequent in our part of the world), your air conditioner works harder and may not remove all the humidity from your indoor air. Humidity in your indoor air can mean discomfort, something no one wants to deal with in the middle of a hot summer. One of the best ways to combat excessive humidity is to install a whole-home dehumidifier to your air conditioning system in Roswell.
Benefits of a Whole-Home Dehumidifier
Humidity doesn’t just make things feel hotter and stickier, it can actually cause problems that can affect those in your home. Here are some of the benefits you can experience with a whole-home dehumidifier:
- Better health – viruses, bacteria, mold, mildew and dust mites thrive when the humidity level is over 60%. Considering the average summer humidity in Georgia is 57-89%, having a whole-home dehumidifier can help keep your allergy sufferers from having frequent attacks, as well as keeping the rest of your home healthier.
- Energy efficiency – when it’s excessively humid outside, your AC has to work harder to achieve the same indoor temperature as when it’s not. Not only will your air conditioner run harder, it will also run more frequently. A whole-home dehumidifier takes the extra moisture away ahead of the air conditioner, allowing it to work as if the excess humidity wasn’t there. This means less work and cycling for your AC, which helps with better energy efficiency.
- Better comfort – humidity sticks to everything, including your skin; this is why humidity makes everything feel clammy. In your home, the temperature may be much cooler than the outside, but if the humidity level is still elevated, your home won’t feel cool and dry, it will feel cool and clammy – similar to the inside of a refrigerator.
Don’t Feel Like a Wet Blanket This Summer
Excess humidity can compromise your indoor air quality on several levels, defeating the purpose of having an air conditioner in the first place.
