When I moved down south, I was prepared for the challenges of the heat, then i knew an efficient plus powerful cooling system would be a requirement, plus I expected to run the cooling system just about all year round.
I failed to appreciate, but, the challenges caused by high humidity.
When there’s an excess of moisture in the air, lowering the thermostat doesn’t really help, the cooling system simply works harder plus uses up way more energy. I pay higher electric bills plus the lake house is overly freezing however not comfortable. That sticky feeling doesn’t go away. When I got weary of condensation running down the window panes plus mold growing on the sills, I finally called a local Heating, Ventilation plus A/C company to ask about dehumidifiers. I wanted something that wouldn’t need constant service. I hoped to avoid emptying a reservoir every morning. The Heating, Ventilation plus A/C company advocated a whole-cabin dehumidifier which installed right into the air handler of the cooling system. The dehumidifier extracts moisture as the air passes through. It operates quietly plus requires only annual upkeepâ€¦ Since investing in the dehumidifier, I’ve been able to raise the temperature setting on the thermostat, then my daily bills are significantly lower plus yet my cabin is far more comfortable. I sleep better at evening plus experience fewer headaches. I have more energy while in the morning plus don’t need to clean as often! Plus, the smaller workload for the cooling system should help to avoid malfunctions plus extend service life. The dehumidifier has made a substantial difference in my budget, air quality, comfort plus overall enjoyment of my home.
