Important Update for Seasonal Residents of Southwest Florida
For those snow birds that have a house tender / home watch service in Southwest Florida, you may consider following these three 3 steps to protect yourself from excessive humidity.
Have your HVAC system checked (preventative maintenance twice a year) by a licensed HVAC company.
Interview and hire a licensed house tender to inspect your home on a weekly basis.
Purchase a relative humidity gauge and place it on or near the thermostat. The house tender / home watch provider should log in the percentage each week. If the percentage is over 60% or higher they should notify you so you can determine if any action is needed.
We found the best buy on Amazon, ThermoPro TP55 Indoor Thermometer Humidity Monitor with Jumbo Touchscreen and Backlight Digital Hygrometer with Temperature Gauge Humidity Meter.
