There is no doubt that becoming a homeowner for the first time is an achievement of which to be proud. But this achievement comes along with some serious responsibilities that go beyond the usual requirement of paying the home's mortgage, property taxes and insurance premiums. One of these responsibilities is learning how to prevent the home's air conditioning system from creating an environment that increases the potential for the development of harmful mold.
Living in an apartment has a lot of benefits when it comes to heating and cooling your home. For example, heat permeates through the walls of each apartment, meaning that you can set your thermostat at a lower setting and keep your home at a comfortable temperature – all for a lower cost than families who own residential homes and pay to heat each room. Unfortunately, there are unique problems that some apartment renters come across, as well.
