Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Comfort is a personal issue and achieving your home’s model comfort level is something the team at Gordon Air Conditioning is ready to help you achieve. Of course, being comfortable and avoiding AC repair is something all homeowners can agree they expect from their home comfort system. There are evident things that you can adjust to advance your personal comfort, like your thermostat, but a less obvious 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 might be affecting 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 alter in Crestview, we have times where the humidity feels absolutely insufferable. While you may consider lowering your thermostat is the solution, 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 some issues 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 usually high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
