Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

July 15, 2015

Complete 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 a perfectly tuned thermostat to keep the air temperature perfect, while others may spend their time on keeping their home’s indoor air quality at its peak level. One thing that often goes under-the-radar is the important role that suitable moisture levels play in sustaining a comfortable home. That’s where a dehumidifier moves in to the picture.

Most climates, like the one in Neptune City, have times in which they are dry and others when it’s so humid that it feels like you should be in a rainforest. While that may be a tad inflated, there are times when you note a change in the moisture levels, and you surely 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 Neptune City. In some spots it can be fairly easy to target humidity problems, and sometimes they do a very good job at hiding. However, the most common signs 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 come across these times during the spring and fall, in the late evening and early morning hours, or on drizzly, overcast days.
