Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Relief is a personal issue and achieving your home’s model comfort level is something the team at Select Comfort System Heating & Air Conditioning is ready to help you achieve. Of course, being 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 change to help your personal comfort, such as your thermostat, but a less visible thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays an important role in how comfortable you feel in your house and it’s frequently overlooked. The moisture levels in your home might be hurting your comfort levels along with your indoor air quality, that’s how a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.

As the seasons alter in West Valley, we have times where the humidity feels absolutely miserable. While you may think lowering your thermostat is the answer, it might be time to consider a dehumidifier. The adequate 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 some issues 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 more uncomfortable. Fall and late spring are usually high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
