Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Relief is a personal deal and achieving your home’s ideal comfort level is something the team at Schagrin Gas Company 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 obvious things that you can change to help your personal comfort, such as your thermostat, but a less visible thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays a crucial role in how comfortable you feel in your living space and it’s often overlooked. The moisture levels in your home are possibly 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 Middletown, we have stints where the humidity feels absolutely unbearable. While you may think 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 a few signs 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.
