Adding a dehumidifier

When I moved from up north to Cocoa, Florida, I was excited for the gorgeous beaches, beautiful weather and close proximity to Disney World.

It is the home of the Kennedy Space Center and the Cap Canaveral Air Force Station.

I was prepared for the heat and made sure to rent an apartment with air conditioning. After living in Cocoa for just a few months, I realized that a cooling system isn’t enough. The humidity is absolutely brutal. The excess moisture in the air makes it feel hot, heavy and sticky. Turning down the thermostat doesn’t help. The air conditioner runs longer, uses more energy and doesn’t solve the problem. I was paying huge electric bills and still sweating profusely. I had condensation running down the windows and issues with mold and mildew growth. It was difficult to sleep at night. I bought a portable dehumidifier that was more work than it was worth. The reservoir was constantly full, causing the device to shut off completely. Now that I’ve purchased my own house, I’ve invested into a whole-home dehumidifier. It is installed inside the cooling system and pulls moisture out of the air as it passes through. I’m able to customize the humidity level to my preference. Because the air feels cooler at a higher thermostat setting, there’s less demand on the air conditioner. My house is far more comfortable and yet I pay lower monthly utility bills. Plus, maintaining proper humidity helps to reduce concerns with mold and mildew growth, dust mites and bacteria. The dehumidifier improves the health of the living space.
