Houston Humidity Control

As we welcome Fall to Texas, it is time to start thinking about your AC repair, Houston area homeowners. Maybe your system limped along all summer. Maybe you got a little tweak or minor maintenance back in July when things were feeling a little too warm inside. But those little “hold-overs” will only last so long. If you have an older unit, it may be time to get serious about looking into a long term solution for your AC repair. Houston summer is no time to be caught with a poorly maintained unit. And letting a qualified professional HVAC repair service like Air Wise work on your system while the weather is pleasant is really a kindness to us!

All joking aside, one thing to consider when determining whether you need AC repair in Houston especially, is if you are finding you have trouble controlling the humidity in your house. High humidity levels can mean that mold and mildew are breeding in your house. This is a nightmare for allergies and health. Also, dust mites tend to thrive in moist air. If your house feels like a cool clammy cave, you may have the perfect condition for these microscopic nasties.

Take a look at this chart.

Humidity Chart for AC Repair Houston

Notice that the best range of humidity for excellent indoor air quality is between 40% and 60%.

Not only does humidity affect health issues like mold and mildew, it can also affect how well we can “cool down.” Since evaporating moisture from our skin is how we cool off, in air that is too moist already, sweat will evaporate into the air more slowly. This means you won’t cool down as quickly or efficiently. You will not only feel warmer in general, you will feel sweaty and sticky and we all know that is NOT how we want to feel inside our houses in Houston. AC repair is not a luxury in these hot climates. With record temperatures (and Farmer’s Almanac is predicting next summer will be just as bad as this summer was or worst!) you need to take good care of your system. Checking the humidity levels is only one component of good AC maintenance.

It may be as simple as getting a dehumidifier. But it could also be a case of having a unit too large for your house. Asking a trusted Houston AC repair professional is the best way to know exactly how to solve any humidity issues you may be having. Why not give Air Wise a call today and schedule a maintenance visit to discuss your options? All you have to lose is hot sticky air!
