Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Air Quality
Repair

Total home comfort can mean different things for different homeowners, which makes sense given our unique comfort needs. However, there is always something that all homeowners have on their wants list – the desire to be comfortable inside their home and dodge AC repair. For some it may be keeping an accurately tuned thermostat to keep the air temperature perfect, while others may focus on keeping their home’s indoor air quality at its optimum level. One thing that often goes unrecognized is the critical role that proper moisture levels play in preserving a comfortable home. That’s where a dehumidifier comes in to the picture.

A lot of climates, like the one in Kennesaw and surrounding areas, have periods in which they are dry and others when it’s so humid that it feels like you could be in a rainforest. While that may be a little exaggerated, there are times when you note a change in the moisture levels, and you certainly 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 hinges on where you live in Kennesaw and surrounding areas. In some spots it can be relatively easy to note humidity problems, and sometimes they do a darn good job at hiding. However, the most common indicators 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 contemplating a dehumidifier is that it doesn’t have to be hot in order for it to be humid. You usually encounter these times during the spring and fall, in the late evening and early morning hours, or on drizzly, overcast days.
