July 15, 2015

Relief is a personal issue and achieving your home’s model comfort level is something the team at Air Service Co. is ready to help you achieve. Of course, being comfortable and avoiding AC repair is something all homeowners can agree they expect from their home comfort system. There are evident 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 living space and it’s regularly overlooked. The moisture levels in your home are possibly hurting 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 change in Muldrow, we have days where the humidity feels absolutely unbearable. While you may assume 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%. In addition to 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 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 very uncomfortable. Fall and late spring are regularly high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
