Controlling Humidity

Written by: Metro Air

There is no doubt about it: Midwest summers are humid. Humidity in the home can make you uncomfortable, sluggish, and sweaty. In extreme cases, it can even cause damage to your home, including mold growth or warped flooring. If you are looking for ways to reduce humidity in your home this summer and keep it more comfortable, here are some helpful tips.

#1: Get rid of excess moisture.
Cooking, bathing, and showering are all necessary parts of day to day living, but if you don’t have the proper items installed in the home to remove moisture from the air, you will be left in a humid, hot space. Make sure to install exhaust fans in the kitchen and bathrooms and use them regularly. Also check to make sure your dryer vent is set up to direct humid air outside. Otherwise, it could recirculate warm air that’s full of moisture right back into the air.

Dehumidifers are also a great solution. The Aprilaire Dehumidifer comes with a 50year warranty and offers some incredible benefits including:

-Improving healthy by reducing mold, bacteria, and viruses that thrive in humid environments
-Reducing asthma and allergies
-Reduces summer utility costs and increases comfort through reduced humidity
-Reducing/eliminating damp and musty-smelling basements

#2: Upgrade your AC system.
Dust mites and mold thrive in humid environments. A quality, energy efficient air conditioning system can help dehumidify the air and make your home comfortable all summer. We are a proud Factory Authorized Dealer of Bryant air conditioning systems and offer several system options for varying budgets. Some of our most popular models include the Bryant Legacy Line, Preferred Series, and Evolution Series. These air conditioners save energy and can help provide the reliability you need to combat hot, humid Minnesota summers.

#3: Make sure your cooling system is maintained.
Preventative maintenance on your AC machine goes a long way. Not sure when the last time you had your air conditioner tuned up? Staying on top of preventative maintenance to ensure all parts are working at peak efficiency is important. Our experienced HVAC technicians will clean air filters and coils, check current draw on the fans and compressor, and ensure that there are no other issues that are standing out as potential hazards or problems.
