Summers in Asheville aren’t only hot, they’re HUMID! So how can you keep your home cool, dry and comfortable this summer? Follow these tips from Sheer Comfort to lower humidity in your home.
1. Use exhaust fans
If your home is well equipped with exhaust fans, you have a built in tool to help lower humidity indoors. Exhaust fans in the bathroom, kitchen, attic and basement work to move humidity outdoors. Run your exhaust fans to keep your home cool and dry.
2. Have plumbing inspected
Leaking water pipes are a major source of indoor humidity during summer. Water that drips from plumbing will evaporate and turn into moisture. Have your pipes sealed and insulated so that water stays where it’s meant to be.
3. Seal ductwork
Holes and cracks in the ductwork will allow the humid air from the attic or crawlspace to circulate throughout the HVAC system and into your home. Call Sheer Comfort Heating & Air Conditioning for a thorough ductwork inspection in Asheville, NC.
4. Lower humidity with a dehumidifier
Whole-house dehumidifiers are highly effective at removing unwanted moisture from a home. Call Sheer Comfort to see what options best fit your home’s needs.
5. Summer air conditioner maintenance
Quality central air conditioning is the difference between a hot, humid house and a cool, dry home this summer. However, your A/C unit needs some TLC in order to keep you from sweating indoors in Asheville. Schedule your summer HVAC maintenance with Sheer Comfort Heating & Air Conditioning to keep your equipment running efficiently this season. We’ll make sure your air conditioner is prepared to keep your home cool and comfortable for many summers to come.
