Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Comfort is a personal thing and achieving your home’s ideal comfort level is something the team at Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning is ready to assist you in achieving. Of course, being comfortable and avoiding AC repair is something all homeowners can agree they want from their home comfort system. There are simple things that you can change to improve your personal comfort, like your thermostat, but a less obvious thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays an important role in how comfortable you feel in your home and it’s regularly overlooked. The moisture levels in your home could be hurting your comfort levels along with your indoor air quality, that’s where a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.

As the seasons alter in Hattiesburg, we have times where the humidity feels absolutely miserable. While you may think lowering your thermostat is the answer, 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 a few issues 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 extra uncomfortable. Fall and late spring are regularly high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
