Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Coziness is a personal issue and achieving your home’s model comfort level is something the team at Mitchell Heating is ready to help you achieve. Of course, staying comfortable and avoiding AC repair is something all homeowners can agree they want from their home comfort system. There are obvious things that you can change to advance your personal comfort, including your thermostat, but a less obvious thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays an important role in how comfortable you feel in your house and it’s regularly overlooked. The moisture levels in your home might be affecting 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 Colorado Springs, we have days 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 adequate 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 some indicators to look for:

  • Musty odors
  • Cracked paint
  • The air feels wet
  • Condensation or frost on your windows
  • Peeling wall paper

We often 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.
