Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Coziness is a personal thing and achieving your home’s ideal comfort level is something the team at Rescue Heating & Air is ready to support you in achieving. Of course, staying comfortable and avoiding AC repair is something all homeowners can agree they look for from their home comfort system. There are obvious things that you can change to advance 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 frequently overlooked. The moisture levels in your home might be affecting 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 Alice, we have times where the humidity feels absolutely insufferable. 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%. Other than feeling uncomfortable, how do you know if you have too much humidity in your home?

There are several issues 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 more uncomfortable. Fall and late spring are typically high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.

Before you spend a lot of time assessing signs of too much humidity in your home, give the pros at Rescue Heating & Air in Alice a call at 361-265-4371. Our knowledgeable experts can assist you on the top ways to keep your home comfortable at the perfect amount of humidity.
