Most of us homeowners are aware of the simple fact that indoor humidity and controlling humidity in your home is a critical element of home comfort. The levels of humidity in your home can affect the indoor air quality as well as the comfort levels that exist in your house during the cold winter months or the warm summer months. We all know how important it is to control the humidity in our homes and often wonder what steps we can take to accomplish this very task.
Here at South Nashville Heating and Cooling we want to provide our valued clients with important information on activities that take place within their homes which directly contribute to your indoor humidity levels. Simple tasks such as taking an extended shower, and boiling a healthy batch of pasta or rice can produce moisture in the air which ultimately contributes to humidity in the house.
With that said, it is important for homeowners to understand the role your HVAC equipment plays in controlling the humidity in your home. Having the appropriate sized HVAC equipment installed is primary to your system’s overall performance, the life expectancy of your HVAC system and to the regulation of appropriate humidity levels within your house. If you were to install an air conditioner that is much too big it will not be able to run for a long enough period of time to remove appropriate levels of humidity from the air. For this reason, installing a proper sized HVAC system is important, otherwise your home will suffer from high indoor humidity levels, poor indoor air quality, and much hotter air within the home.
Controlling Humidity in Your Home
What You Can Add to Your Home to Contribute to Appropriate Humidity Levels
The experts here at South Nashville Heating and Cooling are here to answer all your questions about humidity levels in your home and provide you with very useful insight. To begin with we recommend the use of a humidistat which will automatically regulate the levels of humidity in your home. Further, we suggest you invest in and install a thermostat that is equipped with humidity control features or one of our whole home humidifiers.
You may also want to purchase a whole home humidifier. If you do not have a vent or fan in your bathroom, then surely it is a good idea to have one installed so as to limit moisture from extended showers and reduce the potential for mold growth in your home. Finally, if in the summer months you find that your house gets too humid, we strongly suggest you purchase a dehumidifier to resolve this problem.
