Conventional wisdom tells us that summers tend to be quite humid. That may be true outdoors, and it may also be true that it is, to some degree, the humidity and not the heat itself that is most responsible for your discomfort. The fact remains, though, that the environment within your home may be much different than that outdoors, especially if you are running your whole-house air conditioning system around the clock in order to keep your home cool and comfortable. This can negatively affect your indoor air quality. More specifically, running your air conditioner that consistently can actually wind up drying out the air in your home too much.
