Coziness is a personal thing and achieving your home’s ideal comfort level is something the team at Kohles & Bach Heating & Cooling is ready to help you achieve. Of course, being comfortable and avoiding AC repair is something all homeowners can agree they look for from their home comfort system. There are evident things that you can change to advance your personal comfort, including your thermostat, but a less visible thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays a major role in how comfortable you feel in your home and it’s regularly overlooked. The moisture levels in your home might be affecting your comfort levels along with your indoor air quality, that’s when a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.
As the seasons change in Des Moines, we have stints where the humidity feels absolutely unbearable. While you may think lowering your thermostat is the solution, 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 a few issues to look for:
- Musty odors
- Cracked paint
- The air feels thick
- 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 more uncomfortable. Fall and late spring are usually high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
