Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Relief is a personal thing and achieving your home’s perfect comfort level is something the team at Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. is ready to help you achieve. 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 a major role in how comfortable you feel in your living space and it’s frequently 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 come and go in Denver, we have times 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%. 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 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 usually high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
