Comfort is a personal thing and achieving your home’s model comfort level is something the team at Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. 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 improve your personal comfort, like your thermostat, but a less visible thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays a major role in how comfortable you feel in your house and it’s regularly overlooked. The moisture levels in your home could be hurting your comfort levels partnered with your indoor air quality, that’s where a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.

As the seasons come and go in Oxford, we have times where the humidity feels absolutely miserable. While you may consider 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%. In addition to 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 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 very uncomfortable. Fall and late spring are typically high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
