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 B & B Heating & Cooling is ready to support you in achieving. Of course, being comfortable and avoiding AC repair is something all homeowners can agree they want from their home comfort system. There are simple things that you can control to help your personal comfort, including your thermostat, but a less obvious thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays a major role in how comfortable you feel in your house and it’s often overlooked. The moisture levels in your home could be hurting your comfort levels partnered with your indoor air quality, that’s when a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.

As the seasons change in Florissant, we have stints where the humidity feels absolutely unbearable. While you may think lowering your thermostat is the fix, it might be time to consider a dehumidifier. The ideal 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 several indicators to look for:

  • Musty odors
  • Cracked paint
  • The air feels wet
  • Condensation or frost on your windows
  • Peeling wall paper

We often 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 usually high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
