There are obvious things that you can change to advance your personal comfort, including 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 regularly 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 change in Erie, we have times 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 optimal 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 several signs to look for:
- Musty odors
- Cracked paint
- The air feels wet
- Condensation or frost on your windows

We often associate humidity with heat, but it doesn’t have to be hot to be humid. The heat just makes the humidity extra uncomfortable. Fall and late spring are usually high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
