When summer temperatures reach their peak in Brazoria, Texas, it isn’t easy to manage humidity levels in your home. Whether you’re already feeling the heat or you want to plan ahead for midsummer heat waves, use these four tips to get humidity under control.
Turn on the Air Conditioner
If you want to save energy in warm weather, you might be tempted to delay turning your air conditioner on for the season. Your air conditioner does much more than cool your home, though. It’s designed to keep humidity levels within a reasonable range, so it’s your first line of defense against excess moisture in the air.
Replace the HVAC Air Filters
If you’re a DIY enthusiast, you already know that you should replace your HVAC system’s air filter every few months. But did you know that you should do this more often during the summer months? During this peak time, the Davis Air Conditioning & Heating team recommends replacing your system’s air filter every month. This will help your air conditioner run as efficiently as possible so it can keep humidity levels moderate.
Use Exhaust Fans
You might not think much about the exhaust fans in your kitchen, bathroom, or laundry room, but they can make a big difference in terms of humidity. Turn these on any time you’re cooking, showering, or doing laundry to vent moisture outside instead of allowing it to linger indoors.
Install a Whole-Home Dehumidifier
If your home always feels too humid, our team recommends the Performance Whole-Home Dehumidifier DEHXX. This advanced dehumidifier works with your existing HVAC system to pull excess moisture out of the air every time the air conditioner cycles. This whole-home dehumidifier is designed to keep humidity levels comfortable in every room of your home, no matter what kind of weather the summer brings.
