Controlling indoor humidity is not only essential to your comfort and well-being but also for preventing damage to your home and possessions. Fogging on mirrors, condensation on windows, mold and mildew stains on the wall or ceiling, a musty smell and rotting wood are often signs of excess moisture indoors. Family members with allergies, asthma and other respiratory problems may also find that their condition is aggravated. Our HVAC technicians share tips to control humidity levels in your home.
Humidity also impacts temperature control. The more humid the air, the more heat it retains. That is why it is important to reduce the humidity level in summer and increase it during the winter months. In addition to keeping you comfortable, maintaining the right balance can help save on your heating and cooling bills.
Studies show that humidity levels below 30% are too low and over 50% are too high. Some indoor air quality experts recommend keeping levels between 30 to 35% in summer and 40 to 45% in winter. Installing a hygrometer will help you determine what the levels are and whether they need correction. The easiest way to control this is by purchasing a whole-house humidifier. It works in conjunction with your HVAC system to maintain the desired level.
