Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Comfort is a personal issue and achieving your home’s perfect comfort level is something the team at B & G HVAC is ready to support you in achieving. Of course, remaining comfortable and avoiding AC repair is something all homeowners can agree they look for from their home comfort system. There are evident things that you can change to help your personal comfort, such as 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 frequently overlooked. The moisture levels in your home might be hurting 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 Marshalltown, we have times where the humidity feels absolutely insufferable. While you may assume 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 issues to look for:

  • Musty odors
  • Cracked paint
  • The air feels thick
  • 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.
