Relief is a personal thing and achieving your home’s ideal comfort level is something the team at Contra Costa Heating & AC is ready to help you achieve. Of course, remaining comfortable and avoiding AC repair is something all homeowners can agree they look for from their home comfort system. There are simple things that you can adjust to improve 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 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 when a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.
As the seasons come and go in the Bay Area, we have times where the humidity feels absolutely miserable. While you may consider lowering your thermostat is the solution, it might be time to consider a dehumidifier. The ideal 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 a few signs to look for:
- Musty odors
- Cracked paint
- The air feels thick
- 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 extra uncomfortable. Fall and late spring are usually high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
