Moisture as a result of humidity is a form of water damage. Humidity levels higher than 60% can cause mold and mildew. Depending on the amount and intensity of exposure, the scope of the problem can range in severity. The problem is further exacerbated by the fact that most humidity damage takes time to manifest and often goes unnoticed by residents. A fully functional HVAC system can serve as an important preventative measure against this type of problem.
1. Regulating the indoor environment
HVAC systems create a stable indoor atmosphere, complete with temperature control and frequent air circulation. These two factors can prevent moisture from affecting surfaces in your home. Walls and ceiling that sustain water damage are often visibly affected and the stains can be difficult to reverse.
