The summer temperatures in Springfield, Missouri, can get downright nasty. Triple digits and high humidity are commonplace for months on end with no relief in sight. While you can’t control what happens outdoors, you can make adjustments inside. If you’ve searched for the perfect indoor temperature to no avail, you could reduce your humidity, get a smart thermostat, or schedule an AC tuneup.
Reduce the Humidity
You may have heard that a “dry heat” isn’t nearly as bad as heat with high humidity, and for the most part, this holds true. In high humidity, your sweat glands don’t work nearly as well, causing you discomfort in the process. Fortunately, most air conditioners are effective at removing some of the moisture in the air. If that’s still not enough relief, consider getting a portable or whole-home dehumidifier to do the rest of the work.
Install a Smart Thermostat
Many people have an insufferable temperature in their home, yet they aren’t quite sure of the source. Most of the time, the culprit is your thermostat. Older analog and first-generation programmable thermostats aren’t accurate enough to maintain the right temperature. That’s why it’s time to consider a smart thermostat. These thermostats maintain perfect temperatures and setting, while learning your behavior along the way. Think of it as a thermostat for dummies. It takes the guesswork out, leaving you with a comfortable home year-round.
Get an Air Conditioner Tuneup
