The Problem with Low Humidity (and What Can Be Done)

Monday, October 21st, 2019

happy-couple-enjoying-indoorsWhen it comes to indoor air quality, you may think that the measurement for this is how hot or cool it is in your home. Your HVAC systems certainly play an important role in your overall indoor air quality, but they’re certainly not the only component. In fact, your HVAC system can actually contribute to lower indoor air quality just by their nature.

One of the common ways in which our indoor air quality suffers as we get closer to the winter months is with low humidity. The ideal relative humidity level in any home is between 30%-50%. Anything above this range means there’s too much moisture in the air—a common summertime problem—while anything below this range means it’s too dry. And dry air can be as bad in your home as humid air!

It’s Never Too Early to Prevent Air Conditioning Breakdowns!

Monday, March 11th, 2019

ac-system-being-worked-onOur hottest temperatures are still a good ways off. But don’t let our relatively cool spring weather trick you into thinking that you don’t need to worry about your air conditioner just yet. When summer does arrive in earnest, it can sneak up on you. And even though the warmer weather is generally pretty welcomed, you won’t get to enjoy it as much indoors if you need AC repair in Norman, OK.

The best way to prevent this? By scheduling air conditioning maintenance, sooner than later.

There are some basic maintenance chores you can do on your own. This includes changing the air filter in your air conditioner as needed. Typically, this means every 1-3 months during periods of use (and if you used a furnace this winter, the air filter is probably shared between the two systems, so it’s actually a great idea to change it now!) It’s also a good idea to remove any debris from around your outdoor condenser unit, to help airflow.
