When you live down south, you suffer from humidity.
The humidity levels are high during the summer months, but they don’t disappear during the winter.
The levels are lower in the winter, but the moisture is still there. One of my biggest struggles as a homeowner who lives in the south are the humidity levels. I can manage things during the winter, but the summer is a real struggle. No matter how low I set the temperature on my thermostat, the moisture still lingers, making my home feel warmer than it is. The humidity makes you feel hot and sticky and very uncomfortable, which is the last thing you want to be feeling when you’re inside. When I saw the excess moisture forming around my windows, I knew something had to be done. I contacted my local HVAC provider and asked them to help me with my humidity levels before the summer arrived. I showed the HVAC specialist where the moisture appeared around the windows and told him about how uncomfortable it was. He told me that if I couldn’t get the humidity levels under control that mold would form, which would create an even bigger problem. He suggested that I install a dehumidifier to my HVAC system. The dehumidifier would remove all the moisture from the entire house, eliminating my chances of contracting mold. The HVAC specialist didn’t recommend getting a portable dehumidifier, because it wouldn’t cover the entire house. I took his word and installed the whole-home dehumidifier.
