If you’ve lived in the Asheboro, North Carolina, area for long, you’ve probably gotten used to the high humidity and the hot, sticky summers. But you may never grow accustomed to the high costs that humidity can bring. Find out how you can lower everything from HVAC costs to household investments with better humidity control.
Lower HVAC Costs
Controlling moisture levels in the air is as important as monitoring the temperature in your home. After all, high humidity can make your home feel too hot in the summer, while low humidity can make your it feel uncomfortably chilly in the winter.
When you control the humidity with a whole-home dehumidifier and fine-tuned thermostat settings, though, you’ll feel more comfortable. You’ll also save on utility costs and upkeep since your HVAC system won’t have to work harder than necessary.
Extend Your HVAC System’s Lifespan
Keeping a handle on your home’s humidity has even more cost-effective benefits for your HVAC system. With careful humidity control, you’ll help your HVAC system avoid expensive or unexpected breakdowns that result from stress and overwork. What’s more, keeping airborne moisture levels in check can help extend the life of your HVAC system, which can save you in premature replacements costs.
Protect Your Investments
Humidity can affect just about everything in your home, including your furniture and electronics. When you control the humidity levels in your home, you’ll prevent excess moisture from causing mold to grow on upholstered furniture. You’ll also avoid the cracks and splits that low humidity create in wooden furniture, hardwood floors and even paintings.
With proper humidity control, you’ll also protect electronics and gadgets from the harmful static electricity that can result from overly dry air. That means you’ll enjoy your investments longer and save money by replacing your belongings less frequently.
