When my husband and I moved to the southern United States, I was so excited for a chance to live in a warmer climate.
Throughout most of my life, I have been more sensitive to cold weather, so I was excited for a chance to live somewhere that this would not be as much of an issue.
We moved to our new house in the middle of summer, which was very exciting for me. I quickly learned, though, that heat in the south is much more intense than heat in the midwest where we had lived previously. Our first few weeks we were pretty miserable as we learned how to manage living in the heat. We adjusted our thermostat a few degrees, but we still did not get the temperature control we needed. We installed a few ceiling fans, but this also only helped so much with the heat. I was feeling really frustrated when someone mentioned to me that they had the same issue until they installed a whole-home dehumidifier through their HVAC company. I got the name of the company from them and immediately reached out for an appointment. They were able to quickly come and evaluate our system. The HVAC company was very thorough with inspecting our HVAC and gave us more suggestions for getting the best air flow. They did not find any problems with our HVAC, so we decided to proceed with installing a whole-home dehumidifier. I was surprised with how quickly we saw results. Although the thermostat was set to the same degree, we felt more comfortable than we had been since we moved. We were able to enjoy our home, and we finally felt good about our move. I am so glad we found a way to manage the intense heat with the whole-home dehumidifier.
