Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Comfort is a personal issue and achieving your home’s ideal comfort level is something the team at Hix Air Conditioning Service, Inc. is ready to support you in achieving. Of course, being comfortable and avoiding AC repair is something all homeowners can agree they expect from their home comfort system. There are evident things that you can change to advance your personal comfort, such as your thermostat, but a less apparent thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays an important role in how comfortable you feel in your home and it’s often overlooked. The moisture levels in your home are possibly hindering 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 come and go in Muskogee, we have stints where the humidity feels absolutely unbearable. While you may assume lowering your thermostat is the answer, it might be time to consider a dehumidifier. The ideal 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 a few signs to look for:

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