Most Houston area homes have Center AC that circulates cool air through a series of duct systems in a home. As the cooled air circulates through your home it begins to warm, ultimately returning back to the central air conditioning unit. The purpose of your air conditioning unit is to dehumidify the incoming air, however, in the Houston area, where we have an extremely humid climate, this dehumidifying process may become inefficient if the unit is not working properly or if the unit is under or over sized.
Today’s best air conditioning units use an average of 30% to 50% less energy than those built 20 years ago. Even a unit that is only 10 years old, you may find yourself saving 20% to 40% in energy costs by replacing it with a new and more efficient air conditioning unit.
