I have been looking through my research for our green minute segments and came up with some pretty interesting questions from various areas around the US. I have pulled several that are pertinent to our area and will be sharing this information with you for the next few weeks.
Today’s question is “HOW CAN YOU REDUCE HUMIDITY IN A RAISED COTTAGE IN THE SOUTH?”
The responding BIG question is: do you have mechanical ventilation? If so, see if it runs continuously or intermittently. Intermittent would generally be best as long as it meets your needs, as you would not be continuously sucking in humid air.
The first step to lowering indoor humidity levels is reducing interior loads. Run your bath and kitchen exhaust vents (which needs to vent OUTSIDE) whenever you cook, take a bath, or shower. After you are done cooking you can turn the vent off within a few minutes and as for showers and baths, you should let the vent run for 10 to 20 minutes after you are through (yes even cold showers).
Another question to ask yourself if HOW MANY PLANTS TO YOU HAVE INSIDE? While they are great, some push tremendous amounts of water out, so be careful.
Unfortunately the rest comes from outside and even from us and it has to be removed by the AC unit. buy cheap | most tempting prices for meds ever … information about influenza use for the flu season for health care providers – cdc.
