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 Stan's Heating, Inc is ready to help you achieve. Of course, staying 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 help 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 house and it’s frequently overlooked. The moisture levels in your home could be affecting your comfort levels along with your indoor air quality, that’s when a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.

As the seasons come and go in Ontario, we have stints where the humidity feels absolutely insufferable. 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%. Other than 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 very uncomfortable. Fall and late spring are regularly high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
