Controlling Humidity with HVAC

Why a dehumidifier?

Besides being overbearingly uncomfortable, humidity in a home presents a number of challenges. Humidity is the presence of water vapor in the air. This is often common during the hot Georgia summer or on a hot day. While having a humid house for a day or two has no real consequence, experiencing humidity over time can be potentially dangerous to the health of the house’s inhabitants and its structure at large.

Warm, moist air encourages the growth of mold in the house as well as creates allergies. Having little or no humidity present could be equally as disastrous as it causes a person’s skin to dry, drying out furniture, making people overly susceptible to cold and other cold weather associated infections. Controlling the humid enviornment of the house is therefore of paramount importance.
