& Cooling for further help eliminating the humidity in your home.
Clean Your AC Filters
Just like your furnace, your air conditioning unit has a filter that must be changed every 3-5 months to prevent serious buildup. If you can’t remember the last time you changed your AC filter, this could be one of the reasons your home is suffering from high levels of humidity. Your air conditioning unit’s filter helps to keep moisture and harmful air toxins out of your home, however, if your filter is clogged with years of dust and debris, air cannot escape, therefore making your home uncomfortably warm in the spring and summer months. Give C&K Heating & Cooling a call to check and replace your AC unit’s air filter!
Run the Exhaust Fans in the House
The exhaust fans in your home are designed to help clear the air when cooking or getting out of a steamy shower, however, they can also help eliminate the humidity in your Metro East home. While it is never recommended to leave your exhaust fans on for days at a time, leaving them on for a few hours can help to decrease the humidity in your home, making your space much more comfortable to inhabit.
