Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Relief is a personal thing and achieving your home’s model comfort level is something the team at Central Air Inc is ready to support 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 simple things that you can adjust to improve your personal comfort, like your thermostat, but a less obvious thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays a major role in how comfortable you feel in your house and it’s often overlooked. The moisture levels in your home might be affecting your comfort levels in addition with your indoor air quality, that’s when a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.

As the seasons alter in Portland Metro, we have times where the humidity feels absolutely insufferable. 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 some signs to look for:

  • Musty odors
  • Cracked paint
  • The air feels wet
  • 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 extra uncomfortable. Fall and late spring are typically high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
