Moving down south was a important change for me.
I grew up, went to school plus began my work in the northern section of the country.
I was very accustomed to lots of snow, bitter wind chill plus temperature well below cold. My wardrobe was full of sizzling jackets, fuzzy socks, wool coats, knitted hats plus Winter time boots. I owned snow shovels, ice scrapers plus a four-wheel-drive vehicle. My apartment was outfitted with a oil furnace, plus I never bothered with central air conditioning system. I was fine with a window air conditioning system plus a couple of box fans. Once I relocated, I realized very suddenly that the air conditioning system was a vital piece of equipment. I also l earned that the intense heat wasn’t the only problem. The humidity created all sorts of challenges. With so much moisture in the air, the air conditioning system struggled to keep up! Lowering the control unit didn’t do anything to combat that sticky feeling. I had concerns with condensate running down the windows plus mold growing on the sills. My leather purses, shoes plus even my couch was freqently spotted with mildew. An excess of humidity can also be blamed for headaches, sore throats, sneezing, coughing plus all sorts of health concerns, then dust mites thrive in moist environments. For the sake of comfort, productivity plus a great night’s sleep, I invested into a whole-apartment dehumidifier. I initially tried a portable dehumidifier plus discovered that this option was a lot of work plus ineffective. The whole-apartment unit requires only annual upkeep plus positively impacts every cubic inch of air in the living space. The dehumidifier pulls moisture out of the air as it passes through the cooling system.
