Hi, at Feldman Heating we provide residential heating and cooling for your home. If your home has a furnace or air conditioner that over 10 years old, it might be time to look at modern equipment. Modern furnaces are not single stage devices anymore, they are two stage, they are modulating. They are able to keep your house consistently warm rather than having your furnace turn on and off. Air conditioners can also be two stage and modulating. The two stage and modulating air conditioners give you the opportunity to have much better humidity control than you can get with a single stage air conditioner. We can also look at whole house dehumidifiers to dry out your house if by chance you live on the shores of Irondequoit Bay, Canandaigua Lake, Lake Ontario, where the humidity is always high and the temperature may not be.
The summer is here, and with that comes the heat. We busted some common air conditioning myths to help you save money while still feeling cool!
“It’s not the heat; it’s the humidity.” This cliché sums up a major problem with high humidity: excessive moisture in the air makes you feel hotter than hot. You’re sticky, sweaty, and all-around miserable.
When there’s high humidity inside, it’s even worse. High indoor humidity is super-uncomfortable because there’s no escape. Beyond simple discomfort, excessive moisture can make you sick with allergies or breathing problems. It may also harm your house, in the form of mold, rot, and structural damage.
The Department of Energy reports that in a typical home, heating and cooling accounts for more than half of the energy used. This means this is the largest energy expense for the average American home. This also means that warm air leaking into your home during the summer months translates into wasting tons of energy dollars. Here’s some preventive measures you can take to avoid wasting both energy and money in your home.
