The Full Cooling and Dehumidifying Solution

Monday, June 10th, 2019

standard-fan-white-backgroundSummers in Louisiana bring both heat and humidity—and everyone knows this is an unpleasant combo! No matter how hot it is, a high level of humidity will make the heat feel worse. This is because the moisture in the air makes it harder for the human body to release heat through perspiration. With more heat trapped in the body, people feel even hotter than the air around them.

Since we frequently experience relative humidity above 80% during the summer (which is already 20% above what’s considered comfortable), we have an uphill battle cooling down our homes. Air conditioners must run more often to overcome the effects of both the heat and humidity, and this creates higher energy bills. The extra humidity is also harmful to furnishings in a home and allows mold, mildew, and fungus to start to grow.

But you can trust us to help you out with a whole-house dehumidifying solution.

Monday, May 27th, 2019

If you live in one of these homes, you do have choices for providing cooling during the summers. You can even arrange to have a central AC put in, although it will require adding ductwork. This isn’t convenient (or even possible) for all homes, however. What are the other choices?

A UV Air Purifier Can Help With Winter Blues and Flus

Monday, February 4th, 2019

woman-with-allergiesIndoor air quality is a big concern during two specific seasons of the year: winter and summer. Those are the times when outdoor temperatures are at extremes and homes need to be sealed up to help keep them energy efficient. The less heat a home gains in summer and loses in winter, the less energy the HVAC system needs to consume.

Those two seasons also bring specific problems. In summer, we experience high humidity in the Shreveport area, and this is where whole-house dehumidifiers are excellent. In winter, the big problem is flu and cold season, and a shut-up house can make it far easier for illnesses to spread around.

How can you alleviate this problem? We recommend using a UV air purifier in Haughton, LA.
