Humidity Affects Your Air Conditioning Comfort

During the hot summer months, you will want to find ways to bring down the temperature without having to crank up the air conditioner.

One of the most effective things you can do is lower the humidity in your home, because humidity contributes to discomfort during warm days. So, to relieve your air-conditioning unit or system from having to remove excessive humidity before replacing it with drier air, consider using a portable de-humidifier in your most frequently used rooms during peak temperatures.

There are many other ways to keep overall cooling costs down, and to contribute to saving energy in your community, such as closing drapery during the day, opening windows at night when the air is cooler to create a breeze, and installing ceiling fans to push air down and create a wind chill effect.
