The Problem with High Humidity
On a hot day, a dip in a swimming pool seems like a great idea. That’s why it may be surprising to learn that moisture can make the heat seem worse—at least in the form of water vapor in the air, also known as relative humidity.
Because your body cannot naturally cool off well with too much moisture in the air, humidity makes the air feel a lot warmer. In addition, that water vapor can get into the home and allow for mold and mildew to develop. That’s when we recommend a dehumidifier.
The Problem with Dry Winter Air
In the winter, low relative humidity is more of a problem—when it drops below about 30%. This makes you feel uncomfortable, chapping lips and drying and cracking skin. It also dries out furniture and important items like wood instruments in a home.
The biggest potential issue is with your health. Dried sinuses can wreak havoc on a cold or flu, taking longer to recover and damaging your health further. Your furnace doesn’t help, but a humidifier can assist it in keeping you comfortable.
Taking a Whole–House Approach
We always recommend a whole–house humidifier or dehumidifier rather than a standalone or portable unit. That’s because either of these issues can affect the interior of your home—and, of course, because you deserve to be comfortable no matter where you are in the house. When a whole–house dehumidifier or humidifier works with your existing HVAC equipment, you get peace of mind, better overall air quality, and a better night’s sleep!
We install whole–house dehumidifiers and humidifiers that work with your HVAC equipment. This means that many of them can be controlled by the thermostat, though these systems may need to be manually restarted at the beginning of the season. We install many makes, models, and styles because each home is different. We will help you find the best dehumidifier or humidifier for your home when we come for an estimate (and we never use pushy sales tactics).
