Controlling indoor air quality in the Corpus Christi area can be quite a challenge because of our humid environment. Relative humidity is calculated as a ratio between the temperature and the dew point. Consequently, when you have high temperatures and high dew points, you have high relative humidity. Since cities bordering the Gulf of Mexico have the highest dew points in the United States, Corpus Christi’s high average high temperatures puts it in prime position for very high relative humidity.
Many indoor air quality concerns can be solved by controlling the moisture level in your home. Dust Mites, mold, mildew, many allergy symptoms can all be taken care of by controlling the relative humidity in your home. Pulling excess moisture out of the home environment takes more energy than simply cooling your home, but the results can make you feel much more comfortable in your home. Plus lowering the relative humidity in the summer time will make you feel more comfortable at a warmer temperature which can allow you to raise your temperature and save energy. There are options to consider including whole-house dehumidifiers and The AC-Enhancer. Before you install this equipment, a wise step is to have a professional check the temperature and relative humidity inside your home.
