Fight allergies with refrigerated air
Making the home "Tighter"The tightness is determined by the air changes per hour. The tighter the home, the less air changes which means more humidity is trapped and subsequently the more humid the environment can be. If your house is too tight it is possible to start to have a stuffy feeling in the home and a mechanical ventilation system may be necessary, however this is not a common problem. Adding insulation and air sealing your attic and/or crawlspace is a great way to increase the overall tightness of the home and is a good way to trap in heat and humidity. This can make the environment in the house feel more comfortable and also help lower utility costs.
