Relief is a personal thing and achieving your home’s ideal comfort level is something the team at GV Heating & Air is ready to assist you in achieving. Of course, staying comfortable and avoiding AC repair is something all homeowners can agree they want from their home comfort system. There are obvious things that you can adjust to improve your personal comfort, including your thermostat, but a less visible thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays a crucial role in how comfortable you feel in your home and it’s regularly overlooked. The moisture levels in your home are possibly affecting your comfort levels along with your indoor air quality, that’s where a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.
As the seasons alter in Crystal and Twin Cities, we have stints where the humidity feels absolutely insufferable. While you may assume 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%. In addition to feeling uncomfortable, how do you know if you have too much humidity in your home?
There are a few signs to look for:
- Musty odors
- Cracked paint
- The air feels wet
- 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 usually high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
