The heat pump pulls heat energy out of the indoor air plus exhaust it outside the house
I don’t suppose which is worse, the humidity or the heat. Well, I know that is cutting hairs because the people I was with and I live in a region that experiences plenty of both. There are times where I am covered in sweat just thinking about leaving the Heating plus A/C comfort of my home to venture outside. It’s appreciate a 1-two punch when it comes to the heat plus humidity. Of course, that combination also helps produce some of the best living conditions on the planet 8 weeks of the year. But, that 4 week stretch of deep Summer heat can be entirely withering. It’s a nice thing that the people I was with and I have such excellent modern Heating plus A/C cooling. Without it, the people I was with and I would be 1 boiling plus boiling bunch. It still blows my mind to hear my Grandma talk about the days of swamp coolers. Those old evaporative coolers helped however they were no real match for the level of heat & humidity the people I was with and I deal with. My Grandma also had to work every single day to be sure the mildew was kept at bay. Those evaporative coolers did mostly nothing to regulate the humidity indoors. Our Heating plus A/C takes care of balancing the humidity separate from our help at all. It’s all part of the process. It starts when the Heating plus A/C heat pump starts up. The heat pump pulls heat energy out of the indoor air plus exhaust it outside the house. This allows the cooler air being processed by the air handler to be more effective cooling the air in the house. However, when the heat pump pulls out the heat energy, it also yanks a bunch of moisture from the air. The result is a balanced humidity level in a cool house.
