“It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity.”

How many times have you heard someone trot out that line on a 90-degree day?

It’s kind of irritating, but it’s also true.

Uncomfortable summer days become unbearable when the humidity levels make it feel like you’re walking through Jell-O.

And as bad as it is dealing with humidity outside your home, indoor humidity can pose an even greater problem. Not only is it hard to sleep in a humid home, you’re also at risk for mold and mildew.

Fortunately, there are some things you can do to control the humidity in your home that don’t just involve turning up your heating and cooling system in Bucks County.

Four Small Things That Can Lead to Big AC Bills

8/23/18 10:30 AM Chris Long

“Big things have small beginnings.”

That’s a line from the movie Lawrence of Arabia. In the context of the film, it means that a tiny group of people can affect great change.

But we began thinking about this quote as we set out to write about ac maintenance. Sometimes, what seems like an insignificant issue can lead to a major air conditioning bill.

To be fair, your HVAC system can lose some efficiency as time goes by. And when you’ve had a summer like we’ve had so far, you might be running your air conditioner more often.

Give Your Cooling System Some Love During AC Appreciation Week

8/2/18 10:30 AM Chris Long

It’s fair to say that air conditioning has reshaped our world. Think about it:

  • It’s changed the way we work. We’re more productive in an air-conditioned building. Before AC came along, businesses would often see work grind to a halt during the summer months as their buildings became too hot for people to do their jobs.
  • It’s changed the way we build things. Virtually every home constructed since the 1960s has included central air conditioning.
  • It’s made us healthier. For older people, air conditioning is a necessity, not a luxury, during the summer. And the cool, controlled environments in hospitals have allowed researchers to make important advances in medicine.
  • It even changed the way we see movies. In the age before home AC units, movie theaters used air conditioning as a way to entice customers. It led Hollywood to start releasing its biggest budget movies during the hot weather months, which is how the summer blockbuster was born.
