I showed the HVAC provider all the moisture and mold and he suggested that I install a dehumidifier to my central HVAC system.
I moved into my current house at the beginning of summer. By the time I had all my boxes unpacked and my furniture placed around the house, the summer heat was seeping in. I ran my air conditioner like I had in my previous home, but it felt like my AC was running constantly. Not only could I hear the AC running all day, but it felt like my house was struggling to stay cool. I replaced my air filter, but the previous one hardly looked dirty. A few weeks went by when I noticed that the humidity was seeping into my house. The AC was running all day in order to combat the humidity, but there was condensation building up on my windows and some of my furniture seemed wet. I even found mold growing along the window ledges because there was so much water being trapped. My utility bill was higher than I’ve ever seen, so I knew something was terribly wrong. I called the local HVAC provider and scheduled an HVAC technician to come check out my AC system. I showed the HVAC provider all the moisture and mold and he suggested that I install a dehumidifier to my central HVAC system. It would be more powerful than a standalone dehumidifier and it would cover the entire house. My AC system was running constantly because it was trying to keep up with the humidity levels, which was causing my utility bills to be so high. I noticed an improvement in my indoor air quality as soon as the dehumidifier was added to my central HVAC system.
