Coziness is a personal thing and achieving your home’s ideal comfort level is something the team at Lanz Furnace and Fireplace 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 evident things that you can control to improve your personal comfort, like your thermostat, but a less obvious thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays a major role in how comfortable you feel in your living space and it’s frequently overlooked. The moisture levels in your home might be hurting your comfort levels partnered with your indoor air quality, that’s when a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.
As the seasons change in Monroe, we have stints where the humidity feels absolutely unbearable. While you may consider lowering your thermostat is the solution, 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 indicators to look for:
- Musty odors
- Cracked paint
- The air feels thick
- Condensation or frost on your windows
- Peeling wall paper
We normally 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 typically high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
