Coziness is a personal thing and achieving your home’s model comfort level is something the team at Local HVAC Repair & Service is ready to assist you in achieving. Of course, being comfortable and avoiding AC repair is something all homeowners can agree they look for from their home comfort system. There are simple things that you can adjust to help your personal comfort, including your thermostat, but a less obvious thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays a major role in how comfortable you feel in your house and it’s frequently overlooked. The moisture levels in your home are possibly affecting your comfort levels partnered 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 Wheeling, we have stints where the humidity feels absolutely unbearable. While you may consider lowering your thermostat is the solution, 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 issues to look for:

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