Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Relief is a personal thing and achieving your home’s perfect comfort level is something the team at Air Max HVAC Inc is ready to support you in achieving. Of course, being 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 adjust to advance your personal comfort, such as your thermostat, but a less obvious thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays a crucial role in how comfortable you feel in your home and it’s often overlooked. The moisture levels in your home are possibly affecting your comfort levels along with your indoor air quality, that’s how a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.

As the seasons come and go in Thousand Oaks, 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 optimal 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 some signs 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.
