Need an answer for your high cooling bills??
In an attempt to conserve energy, buildings are increasingly being constructed more and more airtight. Specific to homes, storm windows, insulation, caulking and filling cracks with weather stripping are a few ways we have managed to save energy. Unfortunately all of these techniques also make it more difficult for your heating and cooling system to remove excess humidity…no matter how new the technology.
Excessive humidity can cause your home to feel more uncomfortable than it should. Managing the humidity level of your home however can give you greater comfort and improved air quality.
The ideal level of humidity in your home is 45%. Although it is difficult to maintain that level all the time, working to keep humidity levels close to 45% will not only make your home feel more comfortable, but will also minimize contaminants such as mold and mildew.
Did you know that lowering your thermostat’s settings in the summer only makes your utility bills higher?
A better solution is a whole-home dehumidifier. A dehumidifier works to eliminate the clammy feeling without having to lower your home’s temperature. This means using your cooling system less and saving more.
