Can a Dehumidifier Help You This Summer?

Monday, April 8th, 2019

We’ve heard it 1000 times: “It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity”. And as cliché as this phrase is, it’s true. Humidity levels during the summer can make it feel as though the temperature outside is much hotter than it actually is. This is because high moisture content in the air makes it much harder for our bodies to sweat, thus making it difficult to cool off. So when this happens, of course, the first thing we want to do is seek relief in the comfort of our homes. So what do you do if the inside of your home is humid as well?

High humidity inside of your home can have a profound effect on your overall comfort and energy efficiency, so it is important to address it. Installing a dehumidifier can help mitigate the effects of high humidity, protecting your furnishings, your health, and your HVAC system in Crozet, VA. In case you are not yet convinced, we’ve outlined just some of the many benefits of installing a dehumidifier below. Keep reading to find out more!

Delaying AC Repairs Has Big Consequences

Sunday, September 23rd, 2018

AC-technicianThis summer, with its long stretches of very, very hot weather was trying, to say the least. And now, we’re just about out of its clutches. Many of you are probably already turning your attention toward your home heating systems (as well you should, and come back next time for a great heating tip!). That does not mean that you can just put your air conditioner out of your mind completely, though. Especially if everything is not running smoothly.

While it may seem pretty late in the game to be scheduling AC repair in Crozet, VA, we need to remind you that problems will not just go away because the system has had a few months off. Those problems will be waiting for you at the start of the next cooling season, and they may not be the types of issues that can be resolved with basic maintenance.
