Coziness is a personal thing and achieving your home’s perfect comfort level is something the team at Cytech Heating & Cooling L.C. is ready to assist you in achieving. Of course, remaining comfortable and avoiding AC repair is something all homeowners can agree they want from their home comfort system. There are evident things that you can change to improve your personal comfort, like your thermostat, but a less visible thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays an important role in how comfortable you feel in your living space 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 how a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.
As the seasons change in the Rio Grande Valley, we have stints where the humidity feels absolutely miserable. While you may assume 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%. Besides feeling uncomfortable, how do you know if you have too much humidity in your home?
There are a few indicators to look for:
- Musty odors
- Cracked paint
- The air feels sticky
- 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.
