Humidity plays a crucial role in how comfortable you feel in your living space and it’s often overlooked. The moisture levels in your home might be hurting your comfort levels along with your indoor air quality, that’s where a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.
As the seasons change in Mobile, we have days where the humidity feels absolutely miserable. While you may think lowering your thermostat is the fix, it might be time to consider a dehumidifier. The optimal 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 several issues to look for:
- Musty odors
- Cracked paint
- The air feels thick
- Condensation or frost on your windows
