Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Comfort is a personal deal and achieving your home’s model comfort level is something the team at Von Deylen Plumbing & Heating Inc. is ready to assist 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 simple things that you can change to improve your personal comfort, such as your thermostat, but a less obvious thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays a major role in how comfortable you feel in your home and it’s often overlooked. The moisture levels in your home might be hindering your comfort levels partnered with your indoor air quality, that’s when a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.

As the seasons change in Napoleon and Northwest Ohio, we have stints where the humidity feels absolutely unbearable. While you may assume lowering your thermostat is the fix, 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 some indicators to look for:

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