Controling the Humidity in your Texas Home

Texas is humid, which can make our air conditioners work that much harder. Did you know that the modern air conditioner was built in the early 1900s for a Brooklyn publishing company by a man named Willis Carrier? It was designed to manage the humidity and temperature to keep the paper from expanding and contracting. Living in Texas, we can really appreciate the dehumidification aspect of air conditioning.

Having the proper level of humidity in your home is so important for so many reasons. Keep in mind the following:

    • High humidity makes it hard for our bodies to regulate themselves.
    •  

    • High humidity makes the air seem hotter than it really is, which may make you want to bump your thermostat down even lower, making the AC unit work even harder.
    •  

    • High humidity is bad for your health, and can make it harder to fight off illness.
    •  

    • High humidity creates the perfect environment for mold and spore growth.
    •  

    • High humidity can cause elements in your home to rot and compromise the strength and integrity of different building materials
