A lot of us look for was to conserve energy and save a few dollars on our electric bills during the summer months. This can be easily accomplished by unplugging appliances that aren’t used every day and by turning the thermostat up a few degrees while you are at work during the day. But, before you look to increase these cost savings by turning off your AC while on vacation this summer consider the role that your air conditioner plays in preventing mold growth in your home.
Two words are synonymous with summers in the South are Heat and Humidity. We all look to our air conditioners to keep our homes cool during these months, but we also need to remember that our AC units help control the humidity inside the home. By turning off your air conditioners for extended periods of time, for instance while on a week long vacation, will cause air not to circulate which can cause condensation. This extra moisture can impact other features of your home. Hardwood floors can begin to swell causing floor boards to warp or cup as a result of the pressure created between the floor boards. Laminate floors can expand causing a crowned look. Humidity can also cause doors and cabinetry to swell, paint and wallpaper to peal, damage to sensitive electronics and can lead to mold growth. All of which can be costly to repair.
So, before leaving for you family vacation, turn your thermostat between 83-86 degrees which can still save on your power bill but will also keep your humidity levels between the recommended 40-60%.
If you return from vacation to find mold growth, water or storm damage, give PHC Restoration a call. We have emergency service teams on call 24 hours a day ready to respond to your disaster.

This is the second job PHC has done for us. We are extremely pleased with all components of their work. We are recommending PHC to ALL of our friends.
Given the situation we were dealing with, PHC came right in that evening and started clean-up. PHC walked us through every aspect of our repairs/replacement. They were amazing and made the entire process seamless. Overall, we are thrilled with the final results. I never imagined it would have turned out this beautiful. PHC made this initial terrible experience and experience we will never forget.
Everyone was so friendly, courteous and knowledgeable. Quality of work exceeded our expectations. We have already highly recommended you guys to people we know. Thanks for everything!
I’m in the building trades and feel qualified to say that your crew was better than excellent in all phases. By the end it felt more like a labor of love than a job contract.
I could not ask for a better crew. Everyone was professional and courteous. My home even looks better than before! I will recommend you to everyone I meet.

We gratefully applaud your crews. Their work was top notch. They were polite, eager to answer questions, clean in their work and showed respect for our home. They work well together as a team.
Just a note to thank you so very much for the great job you did in cleaning our church after it had been vandalized recently. Thank you so much for the prompt attention to our Church also! It meant a great deal to our Church Family to be able to have our regular Sunday services in the Sanctuary that day.
Your crew demonstrated professionalism throughout the restoration, were experienced and did a wonderful job in every aspect. The renovation turned out more beautiful than I could have imagined and I know we will enjoy it for many years to come.
I am very happy to be back in my house. Thank you for making it possible within a reasonable amount of time. You certainly are to be commended for your professionalism.
On a scale of 1 to 10 your company is an 11! Everyone at our church is satisfied – not one complaint – all cheers! Everything was done as requested, on time, and above our expectations.
We are very pleased with the work done by Professional Home Care. Your thoroughness and consideration relieved us of many concerns and returned our home to its original state with a minimal amount of time and confusion.
