Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Comfort is a personal thing and achieving your home’s model comfort level is something the team at ACR Air Conditioning & Heating Inc is ready to support you in achieving. Of course, remaining comfortable and avoiding AC repair is something all homeowners can agree they look for from their home comfort system. There are evident things that you can adjust to improve your personal comfort, including your thermostat, but a less apparent thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays a crucial role in how comfortable you feel in your living space and it’s frequently overlooked. The moisture levels in your home could be affecting 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 alter in Lake Charles, 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 ideal 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 a few signs to look for:

  • Musty odors
  • Cracked paint
  • The air feels thick
  • 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 regularly high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
