Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Air Quality
Repair

Coziness is a personal issue and achieving your home’s perfect comfort level is something the team at House of Heating Incorporated is ready to support you in achieving. Of course, staying comfortable and avoiding AC repair is something all homeowners can agree they expect from their home comfort system. There are simple things that you can adjust to improve your personal comfort, like your thermostat, but a less apparent thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays a major role in how comfortable you feel in your home and it’s regularly overlooked. The moisture levels in your home could be hindering 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 come and go in Marshfield, we have days where the humidity feels absolutely unbearable. While you may assume lowering your thermostat is the solution, it might be time to consider a dehumidifier. The optimal 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 thick
  • Condensation or frost on your windows
  • Peeling wall paper

We often 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 usually high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.

Before you spend all your time assessing signs of too much humidity in your home, give the team at House of Heating Incorporated in Marshfield a call at 888-384-3163. Our knowledgeable experts can help you on the top ways to keep your home comfortable at the perfect amount of humidity.
