Relief is a personal issue and achieving your home’s model comfort level is something the team at Freed Heating & Air Conditioning is ready to assist you in achieving. Of course, being comfortable and avoiding AC repair is something all homeowners can agree they expect from their home comfort system. There are obvious things that you can control to help your personal comfort, such as your thermostat, but a less visible thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays a major role in how comfortable you feel in your home and it’s frequently overlooked. The moisture levels in your home might 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 change in Moline, we have days where the humidity feels absolutely miserable. 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 some signs 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 extra uncomfortable. Fall and late spring are usually high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
