High humidity in my Fort Worth home

The summers in Fort Worth are just brutal.

The high heat and humility get to me after a while.

What I need is a way to stay cool in the house. It doesn’t seem to matter how low I set the thermostat or how clean the AC is, it can’t handle the summer demand. I am starting to think the issue is the humidity levels in my house. I have started to notice signs that I have excessive humidity. There is condensation on my walls. I scrub the bathrooms and kitchen for mold and mildew all the time. I also have cockroaches and centipedes a lot. Too Much moisture isn’t healthy or good for your living space. I have talked to a Fort Worth HVAC dealer about dehumidifiers. I can do a portable one that just does a room or an entire system that plugs right into the HVAC. As the AC operates the dehumidifier would work to remove moisture. It should make the AC more effective, lowering my energy bills. I should experience more comfort and less pest and mold growth. I don’t know if I want to spring for the big system. I would need to do filter changes and also annual maintenance on the device. However, everything I have read about the portable units seems like a nightmare. They require so much work and they don’t seem to work very well. I might need to spend more to see more improvement. High humidity in a household is just plain awful. I might be willing to pay anything to remove it.
