Spring is in the air with flowers rapidly growing all over the area. Unfortunately, with Spring comes higher temperatures and excess humidity. The heat can be managed with the proper use of your cooling system, but the humidity can cause havoc with mold and mildew growth in your home.

While the humidity a continuous problem, the extra rain can contribute to mold problems indoors, too. Estes Services is committed to helping you maintain ideal humidity levels in your home to prevent mold problems from occurring.

Schedule HVAC Repair Now

The best way to combat extreme humidity in your home is to schedule an HVAC repair to have your equipment inspected and repaired due to any mold damage. A clean heating and cooling system will eliminate moisture from settling inside your unit and spreading through the air as it circulates throughout your home.

HVAC repair services from Estes Services will keep your system clean from dirt, debris, and excess moisture. Moisture can accumulate during the winter, which can affect the performance of your HVAC equipment even before the spring humidity hits.  

Increase Ventilation

You can increase ventilation in your home with an HVAC repair to install exhaust fans and have your air ducts, and vents cleaned. Using ceiling fans to circulate air throughout your home will also provide the additional ventilation needed to prevent moisture from settling in one place.

Poor ventilation decreases your HVAC’s performance by reducing airflow and causing stagnant air to build in your home. Estes Services has experienced and knowledgeable technicians to improve your ventilation in your home. Proper HVAC repair performed by a NATE-certified technician will ensure your home doesn’t suffer from excess humidity this spring.

Consider Installing a Dehumidifier

If you don’t already have a dehumidifier in your home, consider installing a whole-home dehumidifier to complement your current HVAC system. A dehumidifier has many benefits, including:

  • Boosting your cooling system’s ability to remove moisture from the air before circulating it around your home
  • Indoor air will be less stuffy, leaving your home’s air fresh
  • Surfaces won’t experience sticky or sweaty moisture
  • Prevents mold and mildew from growing in your home or in your HVAC system
  • Dissipates musty odors in your home
  • Reduces water stains on walls and ceilings
  • Reduces dust mites for fewer allergy and asthma issues and
  • Lowers the risk of respiratory infections and airborne illnesses such as the flu.

Dusty Ductwork?

If your home is new construction or you’ve recently completed a renovation, it can be smart to have your ductwork cleaned. If you suspect or know there’s been mold growth in your mechanicals, you should definitely have the ductwork cleaned before the particulates affect your family’s health. Consider installing an UltraViolet Air Purifier to eliminate mold and other illness-causing spores.


Take control of humidity in your home before it becomes a major problem by scheduling HVAC repair. Our NATE-certified technicians will offer solutions to poor ventilation and suggest the best whole-home dehumidifier to work with your heating and cooling system.
