There are evident things that you can change to help your personal comfort, like your thermostat, but a less obvious thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays an important role in how comfortable you feel in your house and it’s often overlooked. The moisture levels in your home could be hindering your comfort levels along with your indoor air quality, that’s how a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.
As the seasons come and go in Laurel, we have stints where the humidity feels absolutely miserable. While you may consider lowering your thermostat is the answer, it might be time to consider a dehumidifier. The adequate 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 some signs 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 extra uncomfortable. Fall and late spring are regularly high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
