Humidity level in the house is a significant element that can directly affect your house environment. The heating and air conditioning is also disturbed by the increased humidity levels in the house. With the weather changing people switch on their HVAC systems but if the humidity level is not perfect in your house you will feel inefficient heating and cooling. Humidity level can cause poor performance of HVAC system. When the humidity levels boost the extra vapour in the environment make you feel warmer even when your HVAC is working and your indoor environment becomes uncomfortable.
The excessive humidity is eliminated by the HVAC system and in ductless systems there is a drain pipe that drains all the humidity from inside. But if you experience moisture in your air, musty smell and sweating even when the air conditioning system is on then it means the humidity levels have gone higher in your house. This will not only impact your comfort but also damage your property. The humidity harms your electrical appliance, paint in the house, wood furniture and walls. Moreover, the harm not only remains to your house but it also causes different kinds of health problems. The higher humidity levels originates sinus problems, skin rashes, skin fungus and other respiratory diseases because the water vapors trap the allergens and germs in the air and when we breathe we take these inside.
HVAC systems are equipped with controlling the humidity levels in the house. Especially new technology ductless HVAC systems effectually regulate the humidity in a space. But if you have not chosen the right size of your HVAC system and it is undersized then it fails to completely eliminate the humidity in your house and it ends on extending wear and tear on your HVAC as it has to work harder to remove excess humidity. Likewise, if your HVAC is oversized than your area then it will also be unsuccessful in reducing indoor humidity. There is a common misconception that bigger size HVAC system will effectively cool and control humidity but it is wrong. The oversized air conditioner will not effectually eliminate the moisture in the air because it will achieve the set temperature on the thermostat early and run lesser. In the result the higher humidity will not be drained out completely and you will feel warm in the room. That is why right size of an HVAC system should be selected for efficient air conditioning and humidity control.
In HAVC systems the moisture creates mold and fungus inside the system and the ducts. Afterwards the mold makes the coils rust and cause real damage to the HVAC system making the life of your HVAC system half.
Just like the higher levels can cause discomfort, the low levels of relative humidity levels can also make you uneasy. If the humidity levels get down during winters then you will feel colder in the house and your furnace or your heat pump has to work harder and longer to make the environment comfortable for you. This overwork will lessen the life as well as the performance of your heating system.
The solution to maintain humidity levels is to choose the right size HAVC for your home. There are also humidifier and dehumidifiers available in the market to get rid of humidity problems. But instead of investing in multiple equipment choose the Anti-fungal ductless mini split system that has an anti-fungal function to eradicate fungus but also helpful in keeping humidity levels in the house equalized. CoolTime mini split HVAC systems are designed to cope up with humidity in all climates and opting for these HVAC systems is the right choice to make.
