Of course, remaining comfortable and avoiding AC repair is something all homeowners can agree they look for from their home comfort system. There are obvious things that you can control to help your personal comfort, including your thermostat, but a less obvious thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays a crucial role in how comfortable you feel in your living space and it’s regularly overlooked. The moisture levels in your home could be affecting your comfort levels partnered with your indoor air quality, that’s when a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.
As the seasons change in Circleville, we have times where the humidity feels absolutely unbearable. While you may think lowering your thermostat is the fix, it might be time to consider a dehumidifier. The optimal humidity for your health and comfort is between 30-50%. In addition to feeling uncomfortable, how do you know if you have too much humidity in your home?
There are several indicators to look for:
- Musty odors
- Cracked paint
- The air feels sticky
- Condensation or frost on your windows
- Peeling wall paper
We usually associate humidity with heat, but it doesn’t have to be hot to be humid. The heat just makes the humidity very uncomfortable. Fall and late spring are regularly high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
