Humidity and Its Impact on Your Cooling System

Monday, April 8th, 2019 by Tom Vatter

top-view-of-air-conditionerThe first thing you should know about humidity and air conditioners is that humidity can, in fact, negatively impact your cooling system. And since we live in one of the most humid states in the country, that can be a problem!

Think about how uncomfortable excess moisture makes us. We try to compensate for it by turning our thermostats down lower and lower. Unfortunately, this means you’re making your air conditioner work harder than it should have to in order to perform, and it will accumulate wear and tear faster as a result. Additionally, even though an air conditioner does remove some humidity from your indoor air, it is not a wholly effective means of dehumidification. (more…)

Monday, March 7th, 2016 by Tom Vatter

The winters here in Northwest Florida are short and mild, and that means that while other regions of the country will still encounter cold days during March and into spring, we’re already moving toward warm conditions that will continue to rise steadily through to our hot and humid summers.

Why Consider a Humidifier Installation This Fall

The reason that high humidity causes discomfort in hot weather is that it makes it more difficult for the human body to evaporate sweat and release heat. With more heat trapped inside your body, the air around you will feel hotter than it is.

Now Is the Time to Schedule Maintenance for Your Heat Pump

Monday, September 28th, 2015 by Tom Vatter

Last month we wrote a post about why your heat pump must have two maintenance visits a year. Most home comfort systems, such as air conditioners and furnaces, only need to have a single maintenance visit annually, either in the spring or the fall, depending on how soon it will need to be in use. Because heat pumps are both heating and cooling systems, they work twice as hard and need tune-ups in the spring and fall so they can make it through the whole year. (more…)
