Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Comfort is a personal issue and achieving your home’s model comfort level is something the team at US Air Heating and Cooling is ready to support 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 evident things that you can adjust to help your personal comfort, such as your thermostat, but a less obvious thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays an important role in how comfortable you feel in your home and it’s often overlooked. The moisture levels in your home could be hurting your comfort levels in addition with your indoor air quality, that’s where a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.

As the seasons alter in Rock Hill, we have stints where the humidity feels absolutely insufferable. While you may think lowering your thermostat is the solution, it might be time to consider a dehumidifier. The optimal 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 signs to look for:

  • Musty odors
  • Cracked paint
  • The air feels sticky
  • 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 extra uncomfortable. Fall and late spring are regularly high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
