High humidity levels affect indoor comfort during the hot summers in Cashiers, NC. Air conditioning lowers temperatures and removes humidity from the living space. However, during the heat of the day or times of extra humidity, air conditioning may not be enough. The licensed service technicians at Radlee Heating and Cooling know which household activities create humidity and what equipment will maintain a comfortable indoor environment. Here are a few ways to be sure you can stay comfortable during the region’s humid, hot summers.
Keep Your Air Conditioning System in Tip-Top Shape
Tune-ups are a simple, inexpensive way to keep your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system in excellent working order. Well-tuned equipment optimizes comfort and saves energy. Tune-ups examine each component of the system and ensure that the unit functions properly as a whole. Simply cleaning the filter regularly can cut energy usage by as much as 15% annually. Filters capture dirt and debris that may otherwise coat coils and ducts. Dirty coils affect the transfer of heat, critical to the refrigeration process.
As part of preventive maintenance, technicians clean and sanitize the condensate system that routes moisture through the unit and out of the building. Clogged drip trays and condensate lines may cause moisture to back up into equipment or overflow onto the floor around the unit. This can damage walls, ceilings, and floors and cause organic growth if not caught early.
Add a Whole-Home Dehumidifier
A whole-home dehumidifier works with your HVAC system to counter the effects of high humidity levels. Trane whole-home dehumidifiers can also be used as stand-alone units. Keeping indoor humidity levels within recommended levels of 30% to 50% has health benefits as well.
