Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Comfort is a personal deal and achieving your home’s model comfort level is something the team at B&D Air Conditioning is ready to support you in achieving. Of course, remaining 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 adjust to help your personal comfort, like your thermostat, but a less visible thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays an important role in how comfortable you feel in your home 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 alter in Safford, we have times 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 adequate 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 issues to look for:

  • Musty odors
  • Cracked paint
  • The air feels sticky
  • 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 typically high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
