With temperatures above 80F for more than half of each year, your HVAC system requires regular maintenance by a qualified HVAC system repair company to effectively cool your structure. In addition to using an air conditioning system to keep your home or building cool, another crucial component of your comfort is the humidity level of the indoor air.

On the other hand, if your air conditioner removes too much humidity from the air, you may begin to experience health concerns such as dry and cracked skin and lips or sinusitis. Hiring a qualified heating and cooling technician to inspect and repair your air conditioner will help to maintain ideal indoor humidity levels.
