Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Relief is a personal thing and achieving your home’s model comfort level is something the team at Scott Temperature is ready to support you in achieving. Of course, remaining comfortable and avoiding AC repair is something all homeowners can agree they expect from their home comfort system. There are obvious things that you can adjust to improve your personal comfort, like your thermostat, but a less visible thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays a major role in how comfortable you feel in your living space and it’s regularly overlooked. The moisture levels in your home are possibly hurting your comfort levels in addition with your indoor air quality, that’s where a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.

As the seasons change in Lawrence, we have stints where the humidity feels absolutely unbearable. While you may think lowering your thermostat is the answer, it might be time to consider a dehumidifier. The optimal humidity for your health and comfort is between 30-50%. Other than feeling uncomfortable, how do you know if you have too much humidity in your home?

There are a few 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 more uncomfortable. Fall and late spring are usually high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
