Hello to all our neighbors in sunny Florida! We all know how the intense heat and high humidity in places like Sarasota can make our homes feel like a tropical jungle. But have you ever wondered how to combat that excess moisture and create a more comfortable living space? The answer: whole house de-humidifiers. Let’s dive into how they work.

Whole house de-humidifiers are specifically designed to pull moisture out of the air in your entire home, ensuring every room feels fresh and comfortable. But how does this magic happen?

      1. Air Intake: The de-humidifier starts by pulling in the moist air from your home.
      2. Cooling Coils: As this air passes over cooling coils, moisture in the air condenses into water droplets. Think of how water forms on the outside of a cold glass on a hot day.
      3. Water Collection: The water droplets are collected in a tray or drain away, depending on your system.
      4. Release of Dry Air: The now-dried air is then pushed back into your home, creating a drier, more comfortable environment.

But what’s the real benefit of this for Florida homes?

Well, in a state where temperatures can soar and humidity runs high, creating a balanced indoor environment is essential for comfort. With the right thermostat settings, for instance between 76 and 78 degrees Fahrenheit during the day as recommended by AirNow Air Conditioning, the effectiveness of your air conditioning system increases. A drier home ensures that your AC doesn’t work overtime trying to cool humid air, making it energy efficient and conducive to a comfortable living environment. And who doesn’t want to save on energy bills?

Furthermore, de-humidifiers help in reducing the risk of mold and mildew growth. High humidity can lead to these unwanted guests in our homes, which can cause health issues and damage to our property.

In addition to a de-humidifier, remember to utilize ceiling fans to create a pleasant breeze in your home, and draw the blinds during the warmest times of the day to minimize the heat entering from direct sunlight. These measures, combined with a de-humidifier, ensure your home remains a haven even in the peak of the Floridian summer.

So, if you’re dreaming of a comfortable, moisture-free home this summer, consider integrating a whole house de-humidifier. And for any questions about creating the perfect environment in your home, AirNow Air Conditioning is always here to help. After all, we’re dedicated to your comfort every step of the way.
