High humidity in Tampa requires a dehumidifier

Moving to Tampa, FL, was a crucial change! I grew up in the northeastern part of the country, where the weather is cold and damp for the majority of the year.

I was accustomed to eight straight months of running the boiler and dealing with sub zero temperatures and an abundance of snow, however snow shovels, ice scrapers, rock salt and heavy boots were necessities, there were problems with inadequate humidity, such as frizzy hair, chapped lips and static shock. The temperature in Tampa seldom drops below the mid fifties, even in the middle of the winter. There seems to be two distinct seasons, and for almost half the year, the conditions are pleasantly warm. For the other half, the heat and humidity are brutal. Temperatures climb into the upper nineties and the excessive moisture becomes stifling. There are problems with mold and mildew growth, wood furnishings warping and upset symptoms of dust irritations and asthma. The high humidity levels make the air feel warmer and lead to lower control equipment settings. This puts added strain on the a/c and results in higher energy bills. After consulting with an HVAC contractor located in Tampa, I decided to install a whole-condo dehumidifier. The device is incorporated right into the central cooling system and works to extract moisture from the air as it passes through. The condo feels far more comfortable at a higher control equipment setting, and I’m saving currency every month… Lessening the demands on the a/c should reduce the chance of repairs and contribute to a longer maintenance life; With the humidity under control, I feel more productive while in the day and sleep better at night.
