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 Knoechel Heating Company 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 obvious things that you can change to improve your personal comfort, like 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 frequently overlooked. The moisture levels in your home might be hurting 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 come and go in Zelienople, we have stints where the humidity feels absolutely unbearable. While you may think lowering your thermostat is the fix, it might be time to consider a dehumidifier. The adequate 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 indicators to look for:

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

We usually 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.
