There are simple things that you can change to improve your personal comfort, such as your thermostat, but a less visible 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 might be hindering your comfort levels in addition with your indoor air quality, that’s when a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.

As the seasons change in Excelsior Springs, we have days where the humidity feels absolutely unbearable. While you may consider 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%. Besides feeling uncomfortable, how do you know if you have too much humidity in your home?

There are some indicators to look for:

  • Musty odors
  • Cracked paint
  • The air feels sticky
  • 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 typically high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
