                                                                                  Humidity and my home

               Humidity can destroy a home. Mold, mildew, dust mites and dank smells are only a few

   of the annoyances with which you'll have to deal if you allow your home to linger in high

   humidity. If you keep the humidity too lowthough, you'll irritate the soft tissue of your

   respiratory tract. Nobody will want to come to your house and your friends will all talk

   about you behind your back.

                 Keep your living areas between 30% and50% relative humidity. 40% to 45% is the ideal

   home humidity range Use a low  power dehumidifier. Thermoelectric or Peltier

  dehumidifiers use a tiny fraction of the power used by typical compressor based

  models. They're also quieter and run much cooler. Onthe down side, they work slower

  than their power hungry, noisy compressor-laden competition.

  If you want a beast with a compressor, at least spend a couple of extra bucks to get a

  dehumidifier with the Energy Star rating to stay within the ideal home humidity range.

  You'll be happier and your friends will stop talking about your musty-smelly apartment

 behind your back.


     So, what is Dehumidification, and what does it have to do with the Air Conditioning and

  Heating field?

         Well, Dehumidification is Air Conditioning. When an Air Conditioner is operating

  in thecooling mode, it is actually removing humidity from the air.  In many areas of the world

  that may not seem so important, but, in very humid areas such as Oklahoma, Texas, Florida, and

  California, excess humidity can cause many  Indoor Air Quality issues such as mildew or

  accelerated mold growth. Proper operation of an air conditioning system in areas such as these

  is vital--to the health of the residents, as well as the well-being of the building.
