Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Comfort is a personal thing and achieving your home’s model comfort level is something the team at Stieferman Heating Company Inc 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 simple things that you can control to improve your personal comfort, including your thermostat, but a less apparent thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays a major role in how comfortable you feel in your house and it’s regularly overlooked. The moisture levels in your home could be hurting 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 change in Jefferson City, we have times where the humidity feels absolutely miserable. While you may consider lowering your thermostat is the solution, it might be time to consider a dehumidifier. The optimal 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 often 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 typically high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.

Before you spend too much time searching for signs of excess humidity in your home, give the team at Stieferman Heating Company Inc in Jefferson City a call at 573-203-3908. Our educated experts can guide you on the top ways to keep your home comfortable at the perfect measure of humidity.
