It's Not the Heat, It's the Humidity

Summers in Virginia can be unbearably hot. Sometimes, it’s not the heat that gets you, it’s the humidity. It puts an extra strain on your air conditioning system. It is a common misconception that air conditioners double as dehumidifiers. Air conditioners only remove some of the humidity, as a byproduct of cooling the air. When your air conditioning system is not on, dehumidifiers help make your home feel comfortable.

Excess moisture in your home can lead to mold and mildew. Unfortunately, there are many health risks associated with exposure to mold and mildew. You can keep your family safe this summer with a whole house dehumidifier. When an air conditioning system and a whole house dehumidifier work in tandem, you can take a breath of fresh air!
