What Does Humidity Have to Do With AC

Monday, July 19th, 2021

Humidity and air temperature are intertwined in many ways. When temperatures drop in the wintertime, humidity also drops because cold temperatures reduce humidity and cause the air to dry up.

Basically, you can’t think about air conditioning without also thinking about humidity!

Maintenance Should Be Yearly, Not “Sometimes”

Monday, April 26th, 2021

What would you say if someone told you to change the oil in your car “sometimes”? You’d be frustrated, right?

Does an Air Conditioner Dehumidify? Yes and No

Monday, September 14th, 2020

When it comes to this kind of question, it’s important that we’re 100% honest with you. Untrustworthy HVAC amateurs aren’t helpful when they tell you that an air conditioner removes all the problematic moisture from your home. Likewise, if they lie and say that air conditioners don’t dehumidify, then they’re not doing a very good job either. The answer, like most answers in life, is somewhere in the middle.

Air conditioners do naturally dehumidify your home, but they don’t do it as well as you might think. That’s exactly why anyone reliable who provides HVAC in Shreveport, LA also services dehumidifiers. Sometimes your air conditioner can work together with a dehumidification system that will ultimately keep your home a lot dryer and more energy-efficient than just one system working alone.
