Attacking Dehumidification During The Summer Months

Attacking Dehumidification During The Summer Months

Did you know the key to cooling your home is "dehumidification" in the hot summer months, and that's precisely the logic of air conditioning/condenser units? Consider These Things For Dehumidification In Your Home Many homeowners want to adjust their thermostat down further when hot/humid days in NE/Central Ohio are sweltering. One of the most important things to consider is to leave the thermostat somewhat stable during the Air Conditioning season. At 95 degrees, it's best to have your thermostat remain steady as an 85-degree day.  Your home's HVAC equipment is rated for the home design and size, house positioning, area location in the US, and typical high/average temperatures, along with building materials and HVAC duct designs used in construction, so most equipment will be rated to achieve 20+ degrees of cooling differences from outside to inside temp's. Example: At 96 degrees/90% humidity outside, earning 70 degrees inside can be tough on equipment. Still, it will feel very relaxed & comfortable when entering the home from the outside, even if the inside temperature is 75 degrees. Of course, you want the equipment to be clean and running well, but lowering the thermostat may be useless during those few days in Ohio when extreme temperatures hit. Clean filters and annual maintenance are critical to keeping units operating effectively. Tips To Keep In Mind To Help Dehumidify Your Home Besides the information listed above, here are som

We're excited to announce Viccarone Heating & Air Conditioning has been recognized by NCI's High-Performance HVAC Today! Gino Viccarone is a lifer. From the time of his graduation from the West Side Institute vocational school in Cleveland, OH, to where he is today, he has only worked in the HVAC Industry. His first job was with a local HVAC contracting company where he worked for slightly more than eight years as a service technician. The hours were long, the work could be grueling, especially during the hot, muggy Cleveland summers. Eventually, he was given the opportunity to do some installation work and he fell in love. In 1994, he decided to start his own company, and Viccarone Heating and Air Conditioning was born. He operated the business from his home. “My father was retiring from his job at the Cleveland Plain Dealer newspaper and he decided to volunteer four years of his time riding along with me in the truck. He refused to let me pay him. He often would buy me lunch, especially on those days when I was getting frustrated.” THE EARLY YEARS In the beginning, Viccarone did a lot of commercial work and as the business grew, he needed to get out of the house. In those early days, he worked a lot for an industrial manufacturing company in Cleveland, OH known as Kirkwood Industries doing, as he says, “whatever they needed.” Much of that work was servicing and maintaining their rooftop units, creating drying ovens, as well as dus
