Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort07/15/2015Whole home comfort can have a different meaning for different homeowners, which makes sense given our unique comfort needs. However, there is always something that all homeowners have in their minds – the desire to be comfortable inside their home and avoid AC repair. For some it may be keeping a perfectly tuned thermostat to keep the air temperature just right, while others may spend their time on keeping their home’s indoor air quality at its peak level. One thing that often goes unrecognized is the crucial role that proper moisture levels play in preserving a comfortable home. That’s where a dehumidifier comes in to the picture. A lot of climates, like the one in Stuart, have periods in which they are dry and others when it’s so humid that it feels like you should be in a rainforest. While that may be a tad inflated, there are times when you note a change in the moisture levels, and you surely notice when the humidity reaches an uncomfortable level. So instead of trying to get by with high humidity by changing your thermostat while your air conditioner is running, why not consider a dehumidifier? So how do you know if you have too much moisture in your home? Some of that hinges on where you live in Stuart. In some areas it can be fairly easy to spot humidity problems, and sometimes they do a pretty good job at hiding. However, the most common indicators of too much moisture include: Areas that are typically damp Musty odors Cracked or flaking paint Condensation stains on the ceiling or walls A sticky feel to the air Condensation or frost on your windows Peeling wallpaper One important thing to keep in mind when contemplating a dehumidifier is that it doesn’t have to be hot in order for it to be humid. You typically encounter these times during the spring and fall, in the late evening and early morning hours, or on dreary, overcast days.
