Relief is a personal thing and achieving your home’s ideal comfort level is something the team at Brandon Heating and Plumbing (1998) Ltd. is ready to assist you in achieving. Of course, staying comfortable and avoiding AC repair is something all homeowners can agree they expect from their home comfort system. There are simple things that you can change to improve your personal comfort, such as your thermostat, but a less apparent thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays a major role in how comfortable you feel in your house and it’s regularly overlooked. The moisture levels in your home could be hindering your comfort levels partnered with your indoor air quality, that’s when a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.

As the seasons alter in Brandon, we have days where the humidity feels absolutely unbearable. While you may consider 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%. In addition to feeling uncomfortable, how do you know if you have too much humidity in your home?

There are a few indicators to look for:

  • Musty odors
  • Cracked paint
  • The air feels thick
  • 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 more uncomfortable. Fall and late spring are typically high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
