High humidity is a major problem for comfort in Louisiana. When relative humidity rises above 60%, as it often does during the summer days, the heat starts to seem much worse. This is not because the temperature rises, but because high humidity traps heat in our bodies and makes it harder for us to keep cool. We need our air conditioning systems more than ever on days with both high temperatures and high humidity.
Does your home’s air conditioning system work to dehumidify the air? Yes, it does. But is your air conditioner a dehumidifier? No, it’s not. We’ll explain more below and offer you a way to get real dehumidification power in your house when you need it.
