Comfort is a personal issue and achieving your home’s model comfort level is something the team at Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc is ready to help you achieve. Of course, being 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 improve your personal comfort, like your thermostat, but a less apparent thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays an important role in how comfortable you feel in your living space and it’s frequently overlooked. The moisture levels in your home are possibly hurting your comfort levels along with your indoor air quality, that’s when a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.
As the seasons come and go in Oxford, we have stints where the humidity feels absolutely miserable. While you may consider lowering your thermostat is the answer, it might be time to consider a dehumidifier. The ideal 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 indicators to look for:
- Musty odors
- Cracked paint
- The air feels thick
- 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 extra uncomfortable. Fall and late spring are typically high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
