Summer heat and summer rain makes for a very humid environment. Here are some tips to combat the humidity in your home!

Set the fan to automatic on your thermostat

Keeping it in the on position will re-humidify the space when the condenser cycles off.

Consider installing a whole house dehumidifier

Whole home dehumidifiers are 4 times more energy efficient and have the capability to control humidity throughout your home automatically.

Invest in a variable-speed air handler

Call a heating and air company to discuss your options.

Don’t assume lowering the thermostat will help

This can be a sign that you are utilizing an oversized air conditioning system. Consider investing in a smart thermostat as part of your humidity strategy.

Invest in a plastic vapor barrier for your crawl space
