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 Klaus & Sons Heating & Air Conditioning is ready to assist you in achieving. Of course, staying 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, such as your thermostat, but a less visible thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays a major role in how comfortable you feel in your home and it’s frequently overlooked. The moisture levels in your home might 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 come and go in Upland, we have days where the humidity feels absolutely insufferable. While you may consider 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 signs to look for:

  • Musty odors
  • Cracked paint
  • The air feels sticky
  • 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 more uncomfortable. Fall and late spring are regularly high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
