Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Comfort is a personal issue and achieving your home’s model comfort level is something the team at Service Plus Mechanical is ready to assist you in achieving. Of course, being comfortable and avoiding AC repair is something all homeowners can agree they look for from their home comfort system. There are obvious things that you can control to improve your personal comfort, such as your thermostat, but a less visible thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays an important role in how comfortable you feel in your living space and it’s regularly 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 come and go in Aurora, we have times where the humidity feels absolutely miserable. While you may consider 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%. Other than feeling uncomfortable, how do you know if you have too much humidity in your home?

There are several signs to look for:

  • Musty odors
  • Cracked paint
  • The air feels sticky
  • 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 very uncomfortable. Fall and late spring are typically high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
