We are no strangers to humidity in the Macon area. And now that summer is here, you’re probably all to familiar with it (and remembering just how much you despise it). While humidity is an aspect that your air conditioner manages as part of the overall comfort inside your home, many systems are lacking in both humidification and dehumidification abilities to ensure that your A/C is responsive to the current conditions. Especially in older systems, you may be getting cool air blowing out the vents, but moisture in the air isn’t being managed, which can lead to that sticky, muggy feeling indoors as well as outdoors.
Other signs of improperly managed humidity include:
- Condensation developing inside the windows and on mirrors
- Increase of insects inside the house
- Musty smells in rooms
- Skin feels sticky and clammy
- Sweating when temperature is normal (and should be making you feel cool)
Worse, excess moisture left unchecked can also lead to mold and mildew growth, dust mite infestations, and warping or damage to wood floors and furniture.
If you’re experiencing anything listed above, or if you in general don’t feel like your system is conditioning the air in a way that actually brings comfort indoors, it’s time to call the professionals for an evaluation. We want to understand where your current A/C and heating system is letting you down, and we can explore together options for whole-home dehumification and humidification (if you have the opposite problem and feel dry) to ensure you and your family are getting the comfort you’re paying for every month.
