What many folks don’t think about, however, is the role that the “V” part of “HVAC” plays. V stands for ventilation, and your ductwork makes up the ventilation system, connecting your forced-air HVAC systems to the outdoors, making the distribution of conditioned air possible.

Can Better Indoor Air Quality Help Your AC?

So, you turn on your AC system and set it to the lowest possible temperature, making it work harder and harder as summer progresses.

Is this really the right way to handle it though? If you worked to improve your indoor air quality by getting a system that handled humidity the right way, could you help your air conditioner out? Yes! Keep reading to learn more.
