Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Coziness is a personal deal and achieving your home’s model comfort level is something the team at Aireforce Heating & Air Inc is ready to help you achieve. Of course, staying 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 change to advance your personal comfort, such as 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 hurting your comfort levels partnered with your indoor air quality, that’s how a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.

As the seasons change in Santee, we have days where the humidity feels absolutely insufferable. While you may consider lowering your thermostat is the solution, it might be time to consider a dehumidifier. The ideal humidity for your health and comfort is between 30-50%. Besides 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 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 more uncomfortable. Fall and late spring are typically high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
