Humidity can kill… your A/C

After the bone-chilling cold in January of 2018, it looks like January of 2019 may be shaping up to be warmer and wetter than usual here in Southeast Louisiana. With that, as anyone who lives here knows, comes increased moisture in the air, also known as HUMIDITY.

Humidity isn’t just something that makes us feel sticky and miserable when its warm out or popsicle-frozen when its cold, though. Humidity can actually make your heating and air conditioning system work less efficiently, especially if your system hasn’t had its annual checkup or is otherwise dirty and in need of a professional cleaning.

The truth is, your central air and heat system is designed to remove water from the air. That’s part of its job. However, when the humidity is terribly high (like it often is in these parts), many systems simply can’t cope, especially if they were never correctly adjusted for your home and usage patterns. And when humidity is too high inside, your home will feel warmer or cooler than it actually is. Not only that, but high moisture in the air can be a troublesome catalyst for the growth of nasty molds inside your ducts, where you can’t see them but they can definitely affect you and your family’s health.

So, how do you know when it may be time to call out a professional? Here are some general tips:

  • Does the air feel moist in your home? Your skin might even feel ‘clammy’ when you’re inside and papers or other documents might not feel ‘crisp’ when you handle them.
  • Do you have fogged up windows on inside-facing portion of the windows in your house? This could be a sign of excess humidity.
  • Is there a musty or moldy odor? You may already be facing a mold problem and it’s probably best to call us out right away.
  • Does it just not seem to get cold enough or warm enough in your home?

If any of these problems are plagueing you, humidity may be the culprit and that may mean your system is due for a check-up, adjustment, and or repair. Some of these issues are easy fixes and won’t break your budget, either…if you catch them early enough, that is.

So why wait? Let our helpful and friendly team schedule an appointment with you to come out to your home, diagnose the issue and get you and your family comfortable, and your home dry and healthy, once again!
