Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Comfort is a personal deal and achieving your home’s perfect comfort level is something the team at Anderson Heating & A/C is ready to support you in achieving. Of course, staying 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 change to advance your personal comfort, such as your thermostat, but a less apparent thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays an important role in how comfortable you feel in your house and it’s often overlooked. The moisture levels in your home might be hindering your comfort levels partnered with your indoor air quality, that’s how a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.

As the seasons change in Carson City, we have stints where the humidity feels absolutely insufferable. While you may assume 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 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 more uncomfortable. Fall and late spring are regularly high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
