Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Relief is a personal thing and achieving your home’s ideal comfort level is something the team at Dial One Mears Air Conditioning & Heating Inc is ready to help you achieve. Of course, being comfortable and avoiding AC repair is something all homeowners can agree they look for from their home comfort system. There are simple things that you can control to help your personal comfort, such as your thermostat, but a less obvious thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays a major role in how comfortable you feel in your living space and it’s frequently overlooked. The moisture levels in your home are possibly hurting your comfort levels in addition with your indoor air quality, that’s where a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.

As the seasons change in Phoenix, we have times where the humidity feels absolutely insufferable. While you may assume 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 several signs 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.
