Controlling Humidity in Your New Haven Home: Can an A/C Handle the Job?Controlling humidity in your Indiana home can present a challenge, especially during late spring and early fall. On hot summer days, when your A/C unit is running full blast, it should do a decent job at dehumidifying your living space as a natural byproduct of the cooling process, assuming it's properly sized. If it's over-sized, however, its dehumidifying abilities will be compromised, and a dedicated dehumidifier may be needed to provide relief. Also, on moderate days when the A/C isn't operating but relative humidity inside your house is 50 percent or higher, you'll need a dehumidifier to bring it down to a comfortable level.

"The service was great as always. The 2 men who came to install my new furnace were very professional and took the time to explain what they were doing and showed me what the problem was with my old furnace. Thanks Mr Hartman for coming up North and for having a great crew."

"Our AC went out and they sent someone out within a few hours and the problem was fixed quickly. With our service membership we also got a discount so the repair price was reasonable. I was very impressed with how quickly and professionally they fixed the problem especially in the middle of summer when they must get a lot of AC calls. Will definitely continue to use Hartman Bros."
