Do High-Efficiency HVAC Systems Offer Better Humidity Control?
High humidity levels coupled with high temperatures is what we all expect from a summer in Pensacola, and a home with these conditions inside is extremely uncomfortable! On top of that, your energy bills can skyrocket due to an underperforming HVAC system in the extreme Pensacola heat. That’s why Shannon’s HVAC offers high-efficiency comfort systems that provide ideal temperature and humidity control inside your home.
How Humidity Affects Your Home
When humidity levels inside your home are too high, you could begin noticing the effects: exacerbated cold and flu symptoms, condensation on windows, periodic mold growth, humid or clammy rooms, and/ or frequent allergy attacks. The effects on your home can look like damage to furniture, peeling wallpaper or paintwork, and warped flooring. If you try adjusting the temperature in an attempt to lower the humidity levels, you’ll create an extremely uncomfortable atmosphere that’s freezing cold and sticky. Nobody wants that!
What Our Systems Do
If you’re living with an older comfort system that’s unable to regulate humidity levels, it might be time for an upgrade. Newer technology allows HVAC systems to run at variable speeds to better control moisture levels in all areas of your home at all times. By consistently maintaining humidity levels between 40-50%, you can also set your thermostat to more efficient temperatures while still staying optimally comfortable.
The Thermostat’s Role
If humidity, as well as temperature, are controlled by your comfort system, you can rest assured that the air in your home will always be cool and comfortable. When humidity is regulated, you can adjust the thermostat to be set higher in the summer and lower in the winter. With less moisture in the air, your body feels more comfortable because it’s able to properly evaporate your sweat and keep you cool in the summer. In the winter, you’ll feel warmer at cooler temperatures because there isn’t as much cold moisture in the air to stick to your body and create a ‘clammy’ environment.
Shannon’s HVAC proudly offers American Standard comfort systems because they are one of the best systems on the market for maintaining comfort and humidity year round, even in hot, humid Pensacola summers. These systems run efficiently enough to save you noticeable amounts on your energy bills, and they run quietly, durably, and are offered at a great value.
Without using so much energy to constantly start and stop, high-efficiency variable speed systems save you money each month while maintaining appropriate humidity levels and precise temperatures throughout every area of your home. They also ensure clean, conditioned air flows constantly through your home. This creates less opportunity for stagnant air which could result in fungal growth or condensation buildup around your windows. Your home and your family will experience maximum comfort at all times with our American Standard Heating and Air Conditioning systems.
Our professional staff can recommend additional tips for controlling moisture levels in your home when humidity levels are particularly high. We can answer any questions you might have and make recommendations as to which high-efficiency system will work better for your home or business.
