In the humid, subtropical climate of Mt. Pleasant, TX and surrounding areas, your air conditioning system gets quite a workout trying to keep your home at a comfortable temperature. While your air conditioner helps to keep the inside of your home comfortable by cooling air and blowing it into your home, another crucial component of your comfort is the humidity level inside of your home. Achieving proper humidification not only helps you feel more comfortable, but also keeps you healthy. Hiring a certified HVAC system specialist to install a whole house humidifier and a dehumidifier built into your heating and cooling system, to maintain ideal indoor humidity levels will help you feel comfortable no matter what the weather is like outside.
When the humidity level in your home is high, your air conditioning system must work harder in order to make you feel comfortable. While your air conditioner is able to remove some excess humidity from your home’s air, during the humid spring and summer weather in Mt. Pleasant, TX and the surrounding areas, your HVAC system alone may not be able to achieve the desired level of comfort. High humidity levels are linked to mold growth, which can cause you to develop allergy symptoms such as itching and irritation to your throat, face and skin. On the flip side, during the dry months of the fall and winter, your home’s humidity level may be too low. Low levels of humidity in your home may cause you to develop health issues such as cracked and dry skin and lips and sinusitis.
Installation of a whole house humidifier and dehumidifier can help prevent health issues associated with problematic humidity levels and increase your comfort level. Using an HVAC professional such as Wood Air Conditioning & Plumbing to install these systems may also save money on your utility bill.
