July 15, 2015

Relief is a personal thing and achieving your home’s ideal comfort level is something the team at Bon Air Service Company is ready to help you achieve. Of course, remaining comfortable and avoiding AC repair is something all homeowners can agree they look for from their home comfort system. There are obvious things that you can adjust to help your personal comfort, like your thermostat, but a less visible 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 might be hindering 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 come and go in Grand Prairie, we have days where the humidity feels absolutely miserable. While you may think lowering your thermostat is the fix, it might be time to consider a dehumidifier. The adequate humidity for your health and comfort is between 30-50%. Other than 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 sticky
  • Condensation or frost on your windows
  • Peeling wall paper

We often 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 usually high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
