Humidity is more than an annoyance that can make you uncomfortable. It’s a danger that can wreak havoc in your home. Humidity, which is essentially moisture contained in the air, creates health hazards and can also damage possessions and a home’s structure. If you notice that the air inside your home is overly moist or damp, humidity is the likely culprit. Here is what it may be doing to your home:

Mold and Mildew

Both mold and mildew love moisture and thrive in homes with humid air. Mildew can cause rot and create unpleasant smells. Mold, especially black mold, can be toxic or fatal. Removing excess moisture from the air is essential to controlling the growth of mold and mildew.

Aggravating Allergies

Humid air greatly diminishes indoor air quality, which is important to the health of those who have allergy problems. The spores which grow well in humid conditions usually have an adverse effect on allergy sufferers, and its effects can be even worse on young children and elders.

Floor and Wall Damage

When walls, flooring, and carpets come into constant contact with pockets of moisture due to indoor humidity, damage will eventually occur. Drywall gets soggy and starts sagging, paint starts to flake, and wallpaper peels. Any objects in contact with humidity damaged floors and walls, such as photos, clothing, or books, can also be damaged, rotted, or develop odors which are nearly impossible to remove.

Ruined Fixtures

Moisture leads to rust and fungus, which results in costly repairs and replacements. Humid air is frequently the root cause of failed fixtures and mechanical issues in pipes, HVAC systems, and major appliances.

The technicians are on time and personable. They have always laid out all of my options for me and have never tried to force me into something I wasn’t sure of – for example purchasing a new system. Even my old broken-down piece of garbage was able to be serviced by them back into functioning. I was able to get an appointment quickly and they were able to work with me to get the service done in a timely fashion.

Twice we needed a split unit air conditioner replaced, and twice these guys were really terrific. I never look for the lowest price, but I have a sense of what is a fair price, and the price they gave me was better than fair. The salesman was terrifically honest, and when I asked him if he would recommend any additional work, he said no. The installers were terrific.

Great service!! I had 2 techs come out on different times both told me the same thing. They did not try to sell me any extra services or a new unit. They both went beyond what I expected. They also educated me on a few things Which i found to be true through my own research. Really glad I found them and their prices are very reasonable.

We service, repair, and install all makes and models
