You may not realize this, but part of the reason air conditioning feels as good as it does is because your air conditioner removes both heat and humidity. If the humidity isnbt removed, youbll end up with a home that is cold but clammy, and no one wants to feel like that. But comfort isnbt the only reason dehumidification is important, as the AC experts at Comfort Central, Inc., can tell you more about below.

Proliferation of Allergens

Moisture is good to a certain extent, but too much moisture creates an environment in which certain types of particles and organisms can thrive, which is not the best for your overall health:

Destruction of Property

It would be nice if biological contaminants like mold and mildew didnbt grow in a variety of spots, but they do, including fabrics and paper goods. This means that excess moisture in your home can lead to the destruction of linens, clothes, furniture, photos and any other kind of organic materials. But thatbs not all b excess moisture can also rot the wood in your home, including structural supports.

Excess Wear and Tear on Your AC

Itbs true that your air conditioner dehumidifies as part of the cooling process, but when there is an excessive amount of moisture to remove from your home, your air conditioner can become worn down quickly. Excessive wear and tear can lead to malfunction and breakdown.
