HVAC gets the humidity balance right

However, the process starts by the HVAC removing warm air from the inside of the house and exhausting it outside.

When you are dealing with the sort of summer we deal with, it takes some patience and some grinding. It’s hard to decide whether the heat or the humidity is worse. The temperature itself runs right next to triple digits for at least 4 months. Throw in extremely high humidity and that makes for a pretty oppressive situation. Thankfully, there is this little thing called HVAC cooling. I can’t even begin to wonder what dealing with sort of heat & humidity would be like without good HVAC. That is something that I hope I never have to find out about. My dad has told me stories of what it was like when he was growing up. They had what is called a swamp cooler. It basically moderately cools the air through the process of evaporation. He said it was that and box fans that got them through the summer. Yet, that method did absolutely nothing to balance the humidity levels of the inside air. If anything, it probably added humidity. That’s another reason we are so lucky to have modern HVAC. It actually cools the air and balances the humidity. However, the process starts by the HVAC removing warm air from the inside of the house and exhausting it outside. Then, cooler air is added to the house which maintains a cooler temperature for longer. However, as the HVAC is exhausting the warm air, it is also removing a great deal of moisture from the air as well. Hence, the humidity level is then balanced and we don’t have to spend all summer with wild mold & mildew growth.
