As homeowners we are all aware of the fact that indoor humidity contributes to the comfort level in your living space. The levels of humidity in your living space can impact indoor air quality as well as the comfort levels. With that said, the team here at South Nashville Heating and Cooling wants to share with our many clients some simple steps you can take for humidity control in your home.
There is a wide range of elements within your home that can directly contribute to your indoor humidity levels. Elements and activities such as taking a long hot shower and even boiling water in the kitchen when cooking can produce moisture in the atmosphere in your home and ultimately contribute to the humidity levels in your living space.
Your HVAC System Matters
It is important for homeowners to understand the significant role your HVAC system and equipment play in controlling the humidity in your home. A properly sized HVAC system is primary to sufficient overall performance as well as the life expectancy of the HVAC system. In addition, a system that is specific to the size and requirements of your home helps to regulate the humidity levels in your home season after season. If an AC unit is too big for your living space, it will not be able to run for a long enough period of time to remove excessive humidity from the air. For this reason, it is imperative that you install the proper sized HVAC system so that your living space will not fall victim to high indoor humidity levels, poor indoor air quality, and high air temperatures.
