Comfort is a personal deal and achieving your home’s perfect comfort level is something the team at Age 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 adjust to help your personal comfort, such as your thermostat, but a less apparent thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays a crucial role in how comfortable you feel in your house and it’s regularly 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 Sandpoint, we have times where the humidity feels absolutely miserable. While you may think lowering your thermostat is the fix, it might be time to consider a dehumidifier. The optimal 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 signs 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.
