Keep Humidity at Bay This Summer

We’ve already had out share of June gloom here in Fullerton, CA and it isn’t even June yet. But our muggy weather is a reminder that high humidity can be as much of a problem as high temperatures this summer, and that without proper protection, it can make your home a miserable place to be. Your air conditioner helps dry the air by default, but doing so robs it of energy and forces it to work harder than it should. A whole-house dehumidifier can deal with the problem in a comprehensive way that improves your bottom line in the process. Here’s how.

The Trouble of High Humidity

Our bodies have a remarkable means of keeping cool: we sweat, and as the sweat evaporates off of our skin, it lowers our internal temperature. But when the humidity gets too high, there’s too much moisture in the air to let that happen. Our internal temperatures stay high, making it feel hotter than it is, and the sweat doesn’t leave our skin. (Ick!) Even worse, high humidity means that germs and mold have an agreeable place to grow, which can mean illnesses for you and your family.

Dehumidifiers Solve That Trouble

As we said earlier, air conditioners can take care of that problem, but they usually end up paying the cost in higher bills and increased wear and tear. A whole house humidifier — which lowers the temperature to cause the moisture in the air to coalesce into droplets — can ease that strain, since it’s built more specifically for the task. As a result, your house feels more comfortable, bacteria is kept to a minimum and your AC can do its job as efficiently as possible.

JC Mechanical Inc. can install a new dehumidifier for you, and keep it repaired and maintained to ensure it works at its best!
