Dealing with humidity is a part of life for Gretna, Louisiana, residents. However, it shouldn’t impact your indoor comfort drastically. Your home’s central air conditioning system is responsible for keeping humidity under control, but when it can’t keep up, you might need a few additional resources. Follow these tips to manage indoor humidity and keep your home comfortable.
Run Your Air Conditioner
The first tip to manage indoor humidity is to make sure your air conditioning system is functioning properly throughout the summer. A new filter can help maintain the indoor air quality, as well as keep the system running efficiently. You should also have one of our skilled HVAC professionals tune your system up regularly.
We’ll inspect the unit and test the airflow, as well as make sure it can manage your indoor humidity properly. During your maintenance service, we can also check the drainage lines to be sure moisture can drain properly, instead of accumulating in your unit.
Use a Dehumidifier
A dehumidifier is an excellent addition to your home. We can install this unit for you to help remove the humidity from your air. A whole-home dehumidifier is the best option because it can operate in conjunction with your HVAC system and manage moisture levels throughout the space. This unit can also help keep your indoor air quality healthy, reducing the risk of biological growth in your home.
Skip the Long, Hot Showers
Certain habits can also impact how much moisture is in your home’s air. During the summer, it’s best to skip the hot showers, as well as alter other habits that can put extra steam into your home. Keep your exhaust fans running when you’re preparing meals, and try to keep pots of boiling liquids covered.
