Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Coziness is a personal thing and achieving your home’s perfect comfort level is something the team at McFadden Heating & Cooling is ready to assist you in achieving. Of course, remaining comfortable and avoiding AC repair is something all homeowners can agree they want from their home comfort system. There are obvious 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 crucial role in how comfortable you feel in your living space and it’s regularly overlooked. The moisture levels in your home might be hindering your comfort levels along with your indoor air quality, that’s how a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.

As the seasons alter in Dresden, we have stints where the humidity feels absolutely insufferable. While you may think lowering your thermostat is the fix, it might be time to consider a dehumidifier. The adequate humidity for your health and comfort is between 30-50%. In addition to 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 wet
  • 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 typically high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
