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 Accurate Heating & Cooling LLC is ready to help you achieve. Of course, staying comfortable and avoiding AC repair is something all homeowners can agree they want from their home comfort system. There are evident things that you can change to advance your personal comfort, like your thermostat, but a less obvious thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays a major role in how comfortable you feel in your home and it’s frequently overlooked. The moisture levels in your home could be affecting your comfort levels partnered with your indoor air quality, that’s where a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.

As the seasons change in East Peoria, we have stints where the humidity feels absolutely unbearable. 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%. In addition to 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 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 extra uncomfortable. Fall and late spring are usually high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
