Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Comfort is a personal deal and achieving your home’s ideal comfort level is something the team at James Heating & A/C, Inc is ready to support you in achieving. Of course, remaining comfortable and avoiding AC repair is something all homeowners can agree they want from their home comfort system. There are evident things that you can adjust to improve your personal comfort, including your thermostat, but a less obvious thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays a crucial role in how comfortable you feel in your living space 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 change in Lexington, we have times where the humidity feels absolutely insufferable. While you may consider 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 indicators to look for:

  • Musty odors
  • Cracked paint
  • The air feels wet
  • 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 typically high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
