Eliminate Mold Potential by Controlling Humidity

Published on: May 2, 2012

Walking through your home to find mold growth on walls, carpeting or stored items can be a frightening and unappealing sight. By controlling indoor humidity levels, you can eliminate mold potential in your home. Our ac service and repair technicians offer these tips for indoor humidity control.

Dehumidifiers
Installing a dehumidifier in your home helps control indoor humidity levels. For small problem spots, a standalone dehumidifier reduces high humidity levels. For homes with high humidity in multiple areas, our ac service and repair technicians recommend a whole home dehumidifier. We install whole home dehumidifiers that work in conjunction with your air conditioning system to control humidity levels and eliminate mold potential throughout your entire home.

Ventilation
Increasing the ventilation in your home helps control humidity levels by moving humid air to the outdoors. Getting the humidity out of your home eliminates the moisture that fuels mold growth. Run your air conditioning system on the fan only function to refresh the humid air in your home with dryer air. Use exhaust fans while cooking and showering. Consider installing an attic fan to reduce humidity from the upper levels of your home.

AC Service and Repair
Performing regular maintenance on your air conditioning system is key in controlling humidity levels and eliminating mold potential. Cleaning the condenser coils, motor, fan, blower and replacing the air filters are part of basic annual maintenance services necessary to keep your air conditioning system in good working order. If your heating, air conditioning and ventilation system is not sufficiently controlling humidity, our ac service and repair technicians offer emergency 24/7 service. We are experienced working on all makes and models of residential and commercial HVAC systems to restore ideal indoor humidity levels.
