There are simple things that you can control to advance your personal comfort, including your thermostat, but a less visible thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays a major role in how comfortable you feel in your home and it’s often overlooked. The moisture levels in your home might be affecting your comfort levels along 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 Rapid City, we have stints where the humidity feels absolutely miserable. While you may assume 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%. Besides feeling uncomfortable, how do you know if you have too much humidity in your home?
There are several signs to look for:
- Musty odors
- Cracked paint
- The air feels wet
- 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 usually high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
