How to Get Rid of Home Humidity

When your air conditioning system was brand new, you didn’t give indoor humidity a second thought.  Why? Because your system kept relative humidity right within your comfort zone.

Over time, however, your system becomes less effective at sending excess humidity back outdoors, so you sweat, toss and turn at night, and feel miserable as often as not.

So, what’s a homeowner to do?  With GBT Heating & Cooling here to provide guidance, you have three basic, whole-house options:

  1. Have central air installed if you don’t already have it.

  2. Replace your aging AC system.

  3. Or, enhance your aging AC system with a whole-house dehumidifier.

The latter not only bring you added comfort, it also will cut your monthly electricity costs.  That’s because you’ll feel cooler at a higher temperature setting.

Here’s what else you can expect from a whole-house dehumidifier:

  1.  The ability to maintain what you consider to be the ideal relative humidity setting. This feature is called “fan cycling” which also helps improve indoor air quality.

  2. A dehumidifier can remove 90 pints of water per day – and more – from your home.

  3. The system drains the water so you don’t have to.

  4. Plus, it’s as quiet as a mouse.
