Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Comfort is a personal issue and achieving your home’s perfect comfort level is something the team at Brogan Heating & AC Inc is ready to support you in achieving. Of course, being 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 change to advance your personal comfort, including your thermostat, but a less obvious thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays an important role in how comfortable you feel in your house and it’s frequently overlooked. The moisture levels in your home could be hindering your comfort levels along 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 Rochester, we have times where the humidity feels absolutely insufferable. While you may consider 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%. Besides 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 wet
  • 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 extra uncomfortable. Fall and late spring are regularly high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
