Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Relief is a personal thing and achieving your home’s ideal comfort level is something the team at Air Concepts of Middle Georgia is ready to help you achieve. Of course, remaining comfortable and avoiding AC repair is something all homeowners can agree they look for from their home comfort system. There are simple things that you can control to advance 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 affecting your comfort levels partnered with your indoor air quality, that’s when a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.

As the seasons come and go in Middle Georgia, we have stints where the humidity feels absolutely miserable. 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%. Besides 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 more uncomfortable. Fall and late spring are typically high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
