DOES HUMIDITY AFFECT YOUR COOLING AND HEATING SYSTEMS?
Philadelphia has a humid continental climate with hot summers and no dry season. Excessive humidity makes you feel hotter in the summer, but humidity can also impact your heating system. It can make it more difficult to keep your home comfortable.
An air conditioner cools your home by removing heat and moisture from the air. When there is a lot of humidity in the air, the system has to work harder. If your air conditioner is too small for the space, it may have to run continuously and cost you more to operate, but still fail to keep your home feeling comfortably cool. But bigger isn’t necessarily better. If the unit is too large for the space, it won’t run long enough to remove the moisture from the air, and the level of humidity will rise.
Humidity also affects heating, but in the opposite way. Humidity levels drop in winter and can drop so much that rooms feel colder than they really are. Your furnace or heat pump will work hard to compensate, but your home may never feel warm enough.
If your skin often feels moist and clammy, your windows fog up, or you experience a musty odor, the humidity levels may be high. Controlling the levels will make you more comfortable and help you save money on operating costs.
By installing a humidifier or dehumidifier, Advanced Comfort Specialists can help your system run at peak performance. Moisture can be forced into or removed from your indoor air before it’s delivered through your ductwork, resulting in a more comfortable home.
