Save Money by Installing a Humidistat
If you’re looking for an inexpensive way to save money, continue reading. Installing a humidistat or a thermostat, with built-in humidity control, in your home is particularly important when you tend to spend a lot of time away from it. If you haven’t yet considered it for this summer, please do, and here are some reasons why.
Just like a thermostat, a humidistat turns your a/c system on and off depending on what the settings are as well as what the environmental conditions are. While thermostats are triggered by temperature (your home’s temperature rises which turns it on), the humidistat works the same when it comes to humidity. Since controlling the climate inside your home is more important while you are away rather than the temperature, the humidistat runs your a/c system until the air inside the conditioned space is below a certain humidity level.
So, why is it important to control that climate? Well, if you are simply shutting off your air conditioning or setting it to a high temperature, the lack of air circulation and rise in humidity combined can lead to the growth of microorganisms like mold. Running the air conditioner alone while cooling a large and unoccupied dwelling in Florida in the month of July can also cost you quite a bit of money and be rather inefficient. By running your system to combat humidity, the humidistat can and will save you money on your electric bill. It will run your a/c system more efficiently sparing it the needless wear and tear and help extend the unit’s life.
If this is something you haven’t considered yet, please do so. It’s a simple but great device that is inexpensive to install. The savings you will incur will offset the cost of the device in a very short amount of time.
