It’s common knowledge that a well-sealed and insulated home can be great for your wallet with lower utility bills. Unfortunately, this can lead to comfort issues when the same air circulates over and over through your home. It can also result in humidity imbalances and expose your home to the risk of damage from mold. That said, you’ll be glad to know you can have the best of both worlds: an energy-efficient home that is also comfortable. Von Deylen Plumbing & Heating, Inc. is here to help!
Keep a constant flow of fresh air.
To make your home as comfortable as possible and to reduce health-threatening pollutants, your home needs a constant flow of fresh air. Opening a window isn’t always realistic and can invite pollen and other allergens into your home. Putting in a whole-home ventilation system is a better remedy. It delivers fresh outside air with your conditioned indoor air.
Keep humidity under control.
For good comfort and health, we recommend keeping your home’s relative humidity levels between 30% and 60%. A thermostat with humidity control can help. When the air in your home is overly dry, you can also have problems. In the winter months, indoor relative humidity can drop into single digits—similar to that of the world’s most barren deserts.
