Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Coziness is a personal issue and achieving your home’s model comfort level is something the team at Air Unlimited Heating & Cooling is ready to help you achieve. Of course, being comfortable and avoiding AC repair is something all homeowners can agree they want from their home comfort system. There are evident things that you can change to help your personal comfort, such as your thermostat, but a less obvious thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays a major role in how comfortable you feel in your home and it’s often overlooked. The moisture levels in your home could be hindering 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 change in Liberty and the Kansas City Metro Area, we have stints where the humidity feels absolutely miserable. While you may consider lowering your thermostat is the answer, 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 several signs to look for:

  • Musty odors
  • Cracked paint
  • The air feels wet
  • Condensation or frost on your windows
  • Peeling wall paper

We often 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 usually high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
