Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Relief is a personal deal and achieving your home’s ideal comfort level is something the team at Farnell Mechanical, Inc. is ready to help you achieve. 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 control to help your personal comfort, such as your thermostat, but a less obvious thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays a crucial role in how comfortable you feel in your living space and it’s often overlooked. The moisture levels in your home could be hurting 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 Opelika, we have times where the humidity feels absolutely unbearable. While you may think lowering your thermostat is the fix, it might be time to consider a dehumidifier. The optimal 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 several 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 typically high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
