Steamy Summer Is Around the Corner. Get A Handle on Humidity

A few words strike fear into the heart of every homeowner: asbestos, termites and mold. We can’t help with the first two, but we can tell you that prevention is key for the third. In a warm, humid climate like ours, it doesn’t take much for mold to gain a foothold. With another sultry Louisiana summer coming up fast, now is the time to think about addressing the humidity in your home.

Don’t Ignore Indoor Humidity

Your air conditioner is an important part of defending against mold as the AC strips some moisture out of the indoor air. Unfortunately, that may not be enough to protect your home. If your AC cycles on and off frequently or doesn’t run long enough, then it can’t effectively remove moisture from the air. This can lead to problems with mold growth. Extra humidity inside also allows dust mites to flourish, according to the EPA, potentially affecting your allergies. You may even find yourself paying more to cool your space since higher humidity nudges many people into lowering the thermostat.

Finding the Solution to Humidity

Warm, moist air is a fact of life in Lafayette. If you want to protect your home and feel more comfortable, then you need a permanent, low-maintenance solution. Smaller room dehumidifiers can seem like a good idea since they are cheap and just need to be plugged in. However, they also need to be emptied and cleaned regularly. Whole house dehumidifiers run automatically and require little maintenance. Choose from two sizes or create a zoned system to meet your needs perfectly.

To learn more about the benefits of whole house dehumidifiers, call Lee’s Air Conditioning Co. at (337) 232-5337 or check out our selection of quality Carrier products. Don’t let humidity leave you steaming this summer.
