Is My AC Enough to Handle Humidity?

Monday, May 13th, 2024

Humidity, the amount of water moisture in the air, is a well-known enemy of summer comfort. When relative humidity is high (above 60%), it makes it harder for the human body to release heat through perspiration. With more heat trapped in the body, temperatures feel hotter. An 80°F summer day can feel like it’s 90°F. That’s the power that humidity can have over your comfort.

High humidity can create other troubles in a home. All that moisture makes it easier for mold and mildew to grow, leading to a combination of building damage and nasty allergy triggers. Moisture isn’t good for electronics in a home either.

At this point, you might say, “Isn’t my AC taking care of the humidity? After all, it makes the house cooler.” There’s a story to that, as we’ll explain. We’re not only pros when it comes to air conditioning, we also work with dehumidifiers in Maysville, KY, and we can give you the lowdown on your AC and humidity.

How Cool Can the AC Make My House?

Monday, June 7th, 2021

Humidity Is Bad News in Summer for More Than One Reason

Monday, May 24th, 2021

Although we’re used to thinking of humidity as an all-around negative, that’s not true. In fact, during a cool winter day, a rise in humidity takes the edge off the colder temperatures and makes it easier to stay warm. Humidity also keeps skin moisturized and prevents dried-out sinuses.

But these are all winter issues, and we’re now at the end of spring, with temperatures and humidity on the rise. Nobody likes high humidity in the summer! 

You can’t do much about high humidity levels outdoors, but there are solutions to help inside your home.
