Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Air Quality
Repair

Whole home comfort can have differing definitions for different homeowners, which makes sense given our own distinct comfort needs. However, there is always something that all homeowners have in their minds – the desire to be comfortable inside their home and avoid AC repair. For some it may be keeping an accurately tuned thermostat to keep the air temperature just so, while others may spend their time on keeping their home’s indoor air quality at its peak level. One thing that often goes under-the-radar is the critical role that proper moisture levels play in sustaining a comfortable home. That’s where a dehumidifier enters the picture.

Most climates, like the one in Waxahachie, have times in which they are dry and others when it’s so humid that it feels like you should be in a rainforest. While that may be a bit overstated, there are times when you recognize a change in the moisture levels, and you surely notice when the humidity reaches an uncomfortable level. So instead of trying to get by with high humidity by lowering your thermostat while your air conditioner is working, why not consider a dehumidifier?

So how do you know if you have too much moisture in your home? Some of that is determined by where you live in Waxahachie. In some spots it can be fairly easy to note humidity problems, and sometimes they do a darn good job at hiding. However, the most common pointers of too much moisture include:

  • Areas that are typically damp
  • Musty odors
  • Cracked or flaking paint
  • Condensation stains on the ceiling or walls
  • A sticky feel to the air
  • Condensation or frost on your windows
  • Peeling wallpaper

One important thing to keep in mind when thinking about a dehumidifier is that it doesn’t have to be hot in order for it to be humid. You typically find these times during the spring and fall, in the late evening and early morning hours, or on drizzly, overcast days.
