Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Coziness is a personal issue and achieving your home’s ideal comfort level is something the team at Brooks Heating and Air Conditioning is ready to help you achieve. Of course, remaining comfortable and avoiding AC repair is something all homeowners can agree they want from their home comfort system. There are obvious things that you can adjust to improve your personal comfort, like your thermostat, but a less apparent thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays an important role in how comfortable you feel in your living space and it’s often overlooked. The moisture levels in your home could be hindering 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 Bossier City, we have stints where the humidity feels absolutely miserable. While you may assume 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%. In addition to 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 normally associate humidity with heat, but it doesn’t have to be hot to be humid. The heat just makes the humidity very uncomfortable. Fall and late spring are typically high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
