Comfort is a personal thing and achieving your home’s ideal comfort level is something the team at Service Max Heating & Air Conditioning is ready to support you in achieving. Of course, being comfortable and avoiding AC repair is something all homeowners can agree they expect from their home comfort system. There are simple things that you can change to improve 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 often overlooked. The moisture levels in your home are possibly hurting your comfort levels along with your indoor air quality, that’s where a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.
As the seasons come and go in Arlington, 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 ideal 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 a few indicators to look for:
- Musty odors
- Cracked paint
- The air feels sticky
- Condensation or frost on your windows
- Peeling wall paper
We usually 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 regularly high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
