Comfort is a personal thing and achieving your home’s perfect comfort level is something the team at Gee & Missler Heating & Air Conditioning 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 obvious things that you can control to advance your personal comfort, including your thermostat, but a less obvious thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays an important role in how comfortable you feel in your living space and it’s often overlooked. The moisture levels in your home are possibly affecting your comfort levels partnered with your indoor air quality, that’s how a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.

As the seasons come and go in Wyandotte, we have times where the humidity feels absolutely miserable. While you may consider lowering your thermostat is the fix, 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 signs 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 typically high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
