Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Total home comfort can mean different things for different homeowners, which makes sense given our own distinct comfort needs. However, there is always something that all homeowners have in common – the desire to be comfortable inside their home and avoid AC repair. For some it may be keeping an accurately tuned thermostat to keep the air temperature just right, while others may focus on keeping their home’s indoor air quality at its top level. One thing that often goes unnoticed is the critical role that appropriate moisture levels play in sustaining a comfortable home. That’s where a dehumidifier moves in to the picture.

Most climates, like the one in Lake Worth, 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 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 cope with high humidity by changing your thermostat while your air conditioner is operating, why not consider a dehumidifier?

So how do you know if you have too much moisture in your home? Some of that depends on where you live in Lake Worth. In some places it can be relatively easy to note humidity problems, and sometimes they do a very good job at hiding. However, the most common pointers 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 considering 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 rainy, overcast days.
