Is your HVAC system not keeping up with the humidity in the air? Learn how product upgrade benefits can help you keep your cool this summer.

As we move into summer and the temperatures rise, you may wonder what product upgrade benefits will help keep your family comfortable. Humidity has a significant impact on how efficiently your air conditioning system runs. With too much moisture in the air, your home can feel sticky, the windows get foggy, and excess dampness can cause mildew.

It’s the Humidity

The higher the level of humidity in the air, the warmer it feels. That’s true in both winter and summer. But as the temperature rises, excess humidity can make the air feel hotter. If your AC unit cannot draw enough moisture out of the air, even normally comfortable temperatures (around 74 degrees) won’t feel cool.

If your air conditioning unit is old or the wrong size for the space, it may not be able to pull enough moisture from the air. It will end up working harder and longer. That causes more wear and tear to the machine. And it affects its ability to work efficiently and shortens its life. Bottom line? It is costing you money.

Consider a Dehumidifier

Before the hot weather arrives, create a plan to handle the extra humidity. Proper preparation can keep your family cooler and save you money in the hot months ahead.

Consider adding a dehumidifier to your existing AC unit. Your McCall’s HVAC professionals can advise you on the best options to upgrade your current system.

If you are thinking about replacing your existing air conditioning unit, plan to add one that contains a built-in dehumidifier. Finally, if neither of these options works for you, you can still add a stand-alone dehumidifier.
