Our little part of the world is pretty well known for its heat during the majority of the year. Even in the winter months, we’ve been known to have a few hot days here and there. As such it makes sense that you’d like to know how to use your Santa Fe, NM HVAC system most efficiently to save money. But do you ever consider how your indoor air quality is affecting this?
We’re talking about humidity, in particular. Your indoor relative humidity levels should be between 30-50% for optimal comfort, health, and even property protection. During this time of the year, it can often drop below that, with your heater drying out the air even more. In the spring and summer, you have high humidity to worry about. It adds to the heat, makes you uncomfortable, and actually forces your air conditioner to work much harder than it should have to.
