Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Coziness is a personal issue and achieving your home’s ideal comfort level is something the team at D & D Heating & AC is ready to assist 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 change to help your personal comfort, such as your thermostat, but a less apparent thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays a major role in how comfortable you feel in your house and it’s regularly overlooked. The moisture levels in your home could be hindering your comfort levels along with your indoor air quality, that’s when a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.

As the seasons change in Brighton, we have stints where the humidity feels absolutely miserable. While you may assume 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%. 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 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 more uncomfortable. Fall and late spring are typically high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.

Before you spend a lot of time looking for signs of too much humidity in your home, give the team at D & D Heating & AC in Brighton a call at 720-316-1401. Our knowledgeable experts can help you on the most effective ways to keep your home comfortable at the perfect level of humidity.
