No mildew thanks to heat pump

Those swamp coolers help with the heat a bit but do nothing when it comes to the humidity

I haven’t had the air conditioning on just yet. But it’s coming for sure. Being a native of this region, I’m not one to go right for the thermostat when the temperatures start reaching the 80’s. This is still some fantastic weather and I’m not about to miss it. The time for closing up the house, sealing it tight and having the air conditioning left on is close enough. And there will be plenty of time where we retreat to the cooling comfort of our homes. But while it’s like this, I want to savor the perfect weather and the great temperatures. For some in my community, air conditioning is on now. That’s fine because everyone has their own internal comfort zones. But I find that if I get comfortable with the rising temperatures, it makes summer at lot less overwhelming. And it also saves us big money on the air conditioning bill because we don’t need as much cooling demand. However, it’s essential to have good air conditioning for the worst four months of the heat season. And it’s not for the cooling comfort alone. There is another big issue that the heat pump also takes care of the. The air conditioning process also regulates the humidity balance in the air. So we don’t have to deal with a bunch of mold and mildew all summer. To me, this may be the most important facet of HVAC technology. My grandmother was up to her elbows in bleach water as all she had was an evaporative cooler in her home. Those swamp coolers help with the heat a bit but do nothing when it comes to the humidity. So I’m awful thankful for the central air conditioning in my home on a number of levels.
