With summer well on its way, temperatures already rising, and uncertainty around just how much we’ll be able to be out and about this coming season, it’s time to prepare for one of the most uncomfortable climate experiences we have here in Georgia—humidity.

If you’re wondering if an air conditioner helps dehumidify your air, yes, it does. But that is not what your air conditioner is designed for! In fact, humidity can make you feel warmer and adjust your thermostat lower so that the compressor runs longer. This means you’re more likely to experience breakdowns and it’s more likely you’ll shorten the air conditioner’s lifespan.

The solution? A whole-house dehumidifier!

The last thing you need this summer is to be stuck in an uncomfortable living space, right? Well, if you do want optimal comfort and quality of life, then you need to take proper care of your home’s central air conditioning system. This appliance is one of the most specialized systems in your home and requires years of training and extensive experience to know how to properly work with.

Just like your vehicle or any other large and important piece of equipment, your air conditioning system needs routine maintenance to keep operating as it should. It’s a lot easier (and more affordable) to address problems with this system while they’re still minor, rather than waiting until they are an emergency—and maintenance lets that happen.

Even the best air conditioners on the market have a lifespan of about 10-15 years. Help your household get the most out of your system by staying on top of not only maintenance, but repair needs too.
