Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Coziness is a personal issue and achieving your home’s model comfort level is something the team at Air Temperature Control 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 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 could be affecting your comfort levels along with your indoor air quality, that’s how a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.

As the seasons come and go in Macon, we have times where the humidity feels absolutely insufferable. While you may assume lowering your thermostat is the answer, 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 some signs 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 very uncomfortable. Fall and late spring are usually high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
