Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Coziness is a personal thing and achieving your home’s perfect comfort level is something the team at Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces 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 control to help your personal comfort, including your thermostat, but a less apparent thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays a crucial role in how comfortable you feel in your house and it’s regularly overlooked. The moisture levels in your home are possibly affecting your comfort levels in addition with your indoor air quality, that’s where a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.

As the seasons alter in Alliance, we have stints where the humidity feels absolutely miserable. 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%. Other than 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 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.
