Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Comfort is a personal thing and achieving your home’s perfect comfort level is something the team at Superior Comfort Systems 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 simple things that you can adjust to advance your personal comfort, including your thermostat, but a less visible thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays an important role in how comfortable you feel in your home and it’s often overlooked. The moisture levels in your home are possibly hurting 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 Hendersonville, we have times 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 adequate humidity for your health and comfort is between 30-50%. In addition to 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 sticky
  • Condensation or frost on your windows
  • Peeling wall paper

We usually 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 regularly high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
