While the summer heat can be unbearable, it’s the humidity that really makes the difference! Our bodies are designed to be able to cool themselves down naturally, but with excess moisture in the air it can be harder for that to happen – and that means we’re running to crank up the air conditioning system! Humidity doesn’t have to be such a problem! New, high-efficiency central air conditioning systems are built to help remove that extra moisture in the air, leaving you feeling even cooler and allowing you to turn down the AC, saving on energy costs.

Besides lowering the utility costs, a variable-speed central air conditioning system’s humidity control can help you:

  • Improve personal comfort
  • Control moisture that can damage your home’s wood, paint, and siding
  • Prevent mildew growth and odors in clothing and belongings
  • Improve indoor air quality by reducing dust mites, mold and other allergens
  • Reduce pest infestations
  • Improve the energy efficiency of your air conditioning system

What’s more, upgrading your central air conditioning system to a newer model will also reduce your energy costs by up to 30% – on top of the savings you’ll find by reducing the humidity within your home! Combine the comfort of a new central system with our Connected Home, and you’ll be able to keep an eye on and control your home’s temperature and humidity levels from anywhere with Wi-Fi access.
