As a homeowner in Beaumont and Nederland, TX and the surrounding areas, your air conditioner works hard to keep you and your family comfortable. Living in The Golden Triangle means that your air conditioner must deal with heat and humidity for much of the year. This moisture epidemic significantly impacts the functioning of your air conditioner. Our professional air conditioning service technicians offer these tips to help reduce moisture and humidity in your home.
If your home in the Golden Triangle has a moisture problem, a dehumidifier may solve your issue. Dehumidifiers work in conjunction with your air conditioner to remove moisture. You may purchase a stand-alone dehumidifier for a small space such as a partial basement or several stand- alone dehumidifiers for larger areas. Our professional air conditioning service technicians install whole-house dehumidifiers that work with your HVAC system to dehumidify your home.
Making some minor home improvements on your home in the Golden Triangle may reduce the burden on your air conditioner in dealing with the moisture epidemic. Seal any cracks in your home’s foundation, as moisture may seep into your home. Repair any leaky faucets or pipes. Clean the gutters so rain water can flow away from your home and extend the downspouts to direct water away from the foundation of your home.
Increasing the ventilation in your home in the Golden Triangle helps dissipate moisture levels. Run the exhaust fans in your kitchen and bathroom while cooking and showering. If your home does not have exhaust fans, open a window. Our professional air conditioning service technicians will install exhaust fans to help remove moisture from your home.
