Comfort is a personal deal and achieving your home’s perfect comfort level is something the team at Mayeuxs AC & Heating is ready to help you achieve. Of course, being comfortable and avoiding AC repair is something all homeowners can agree they look for from their home comfort system. There are simple things that you can change 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 home and it’s often overlooked. The moisture levels in your home might be affecting 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 alter in Norco and St. Charles Parish, we have times where the humidity feels absolutely insufferable. While you may assume 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%. Other than feeling uncomfortable, how do you know if you have too much humidity in your home?
There are some signs to look for:
- Musty odors
- Cracked paint
- The air feels wet
- Condensation or frost on your windows
- Peeling wall paper
We normally associate humidity with heat, but it doesn’t have to be hot to be humid. The heat just makes the humidity extra uncomfortable. Fall and late spring are typically high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
