Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

July 15, 2015

Comfort is a personal deal and achieving your home’s ideal comfort level is something the team at Booneville Heating & Cooling LLC is ready to help you achieve. Of course, staying comfortable and avoiding AC repair is something all homeowners can agree they expect from their home comfort system. There are evident things that you can change to improve your personal comfort, such as your thermostat, but a less visible thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays an important role in how comfortable you feel in your living space and it’s often overlooked. The moisture levels in your home could be hurting your comfort levels along with your indoor air quality, that’s when a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.

As the seasons alter in Booneville, we have days where the humidity feels absolutely unbearable. While you may assume lowering your thermostat is the fix, it might be time to consider a dehumidifier. The adequate humidity for your health and comfort is between 30-50%. Other than feeling uncomfortable, how do you know if you have too much humidity in your home?

There are a few indicators to look for:

  • Musty odors
  • Cracked paint
  • The air feels wet
  • 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 extra uncomfortable. Fall and late spring are usually high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
