Were you aware that humidity can actually hurt your air conditioner?
Consider this—humidity is excess moisture that comes with the high summer temperatures we deal with here in the Gainesville area and beyond. The moisture makes us uncomfortable and feel even hotter since we can’t sweat, so we turn our air conditioner’s thermostat as low as it will go to try to cool off faster. This makes your air conditioner work harder (harder than it should have to, by the way) and therefore increases wear and tear on the system.
In addition, you’ll have done nothing to actually rid your home of that excess humidity, leaving you still uncomfortable, prone to property damage, and prone to illness brought on by the development of mold and mildew.
