💧 Why control indoor humidity?

In humid climates controlling indoor humidity levels might be necessary.

Why it matters: Relative Humidity (RH) levels above 55% create conditions for mold growth and dust mites.

  • Humidity also damages common building materials like wood and sheetrock.

🖼️ The big picture: Newer air conditioners — variable speed AND higher SEER — use less energy and need to run for less time than older units.

  • BUT shorter run time means less time to pull moisture out of the air.

🥊 The bottom line: Adding a dehumidifier might be your only option.

  • You can focus on a room or area like a bedroom, bathroom or crawl space.
  • Or you can add a whole home dehumidifier.
