How to Control Humidity in Your Home

Humidity in Your Home

High humidity levels coupled with high temperatures is just what you can expect from a summer in Huntsville, Alabama. The last thing you need is for the inside of your home to have the same problem. A hot and humid home is extremely uncomfortable, and your energy bills can skyrocket due to the low efficiency of your comfort system. That’s why, at Garrison & Garrison, we offer high efficiency comfort systems that offer optimum temperature and humidity control. 

Effects of Humidity in Your Home

You may be noticing condensating windows, sporadic mold growth, cold and clammy rooms, and frequent and severe allergies lately. Why? Because the weather is getting warmer outside and you’re lowering your air conditioning system while the humidity levels in your home are still too high. If your system isn’t running correctly and the air in your home is too warm, humidity levels will rise and make your home feel hotter, even sticky.

On the flip side, when humidity levels are too low, you run the risk of catching a cold, getting infections, developing dry and itchy skin, and even damaging your home’s foundational aspects. Your comfort level will also be impacted, resulting in you resetting your thermostat throughout the day, driving up energy costs. 

What Our Systems Do

You don’t need numbers thrown at you about what temperature outside needs to correspond with what level of humidity in your home. You just need to focus on your comfort. That’s why we offer American Standard’s top of the line air conditioning systems. These systems run efficiently enough to save you noticeable amounts on your energy bills each month. On top of that, they run quietly and are offered at a great value with financing options available. 

These high efficiency systems control temperatures more precisely, not allowing for constant temperature swings to raise humidity and lower comfort levels in your home. With lower energy use and longer run times, there is also less opportunity for stagnant air to spore mold growth or condensate your windows. Your home and your family will experience maximum comfort at all times with our American Standard Heating and Air Conditioning  systems.
