Ideas on How to Control the Humidity in Your Home
All indoor living spaces require some amount of humidity in the air to provide comfortable atmospheres all year round. However, it is important to understand that if you have too much or too little humidity in your home, you can find yourself faced with some costly repairs that may, over time, need to be performed.
Controlling the humidity in your home plays an important role in the overall health, safety and well-being of your family. During the scorching hot summer months, the use of an air conditioner can help remove excess moisture from your home’s atmosphere. However, though your AC provides much comfort to your home and family, there are times when condensation develops and appears on your windows as a result of the hot temperatures outdoors. This condensation, over a period, can cause issues including, but not limited to, warped or rotted wood around windows. For this reason, we want our clients to be aware of the importance of controlled humidity in the home.
- One of the best ways to control humidity is by way of a dehumidifier. A dehumidifier is extremely simple to use and only requires a change of filters routinely to keep it functioning properly and effectively. A dehumidifier is the perfect addition to your home for controlling and maintaining proper humidity levels during the hot summer months and year-round.
- Proper ventilation is yet another way of controlling humidity in your indoor living space. With so many activities performed every day such as cooking, showering, laundry, and running your dishwasher, it is important to curtail the buildup of moisture in your home. With that said, installing ceiling fans throughout the rooms in your home and exhaust fans in the kitchen, bathroom, and the laundry room can greatly help to minimize and even alleviate dampness and moisture in the air that results in humidity.
- The basement and attic in your home is more than likely damp and contributing to humidity levels in your home. Heavy rains can also contribute to humidity levels. To avoid excessive humidity in your basement or attic, we highly recommend you install fans to minimize the amount of humidity. Drier air in your home contributes to a higher air quality and a healthier atmosphere for your whole family.
