Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Coziness is a personal issue and achieving your home’s perfect comfort level is something the team at Wallpe Heating & Cooling is ready to support you in achieving. Of course, being 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 adjust to improve your personal comfort, like your thermostat, but a less apparent thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays an important role in how comfortable you feel in your home and it’s regularly 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 alter in Greensburg, we have stints where the humidity feels absolutely unbearable. While you may consider lowering your thermostat is the answer, it might be time to consider a dehumidifier. The optimal 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 signs to look for:

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