Combatting the effect of high humidity with HVAC

There is one constant where I live when it comes to the weather.

In the summertime, you can count on it being hot and humid. This is something that just never changes about this region. If you can’t take a lot of heat and humidity, you might want to consider another locale. However, we do have a tool in the fight against the heat and humidity. This, of course, is the HVAC heat pump. That piece of equipment is essential to every household in this region. I can’t even imagine what it must have been like when the only way to combat the heat of summer were fans. That just doesn’t hardly even compute. I know that I do all of my outside activities either early in the morning or late in the evening. The rest of the day is designated for being inside the HVAC comfort somewhere. However, the heat pump is not only useful in dealing with the heat. The HVAC heat pump is elemental in balancing the humidity inside our homes. Without the balancing effect of HVAC cooling, we would be up to our elbows in mold & mildew. That is a bad scenario. Not only is mold & mildew gross and disgusting, it is a known health hazard. The presence of mold & mildew can bring on all sorts of debilitating health concerns. Thankfully, we live in an age where we aren’t constantly battling mold & mildew as part of summer. The cooling process is key to balancing the humidity level inside the house. As the heat pump removes warm air from the house, it is also removing moisture. Both the heat and the humidity are then exhausted outdoors. And we get to enjoy a home that is properly humidified.
