Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort07/15/2015Total 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 in their minds – the desire to be comfortable inside their home and dodge AC repair. For some it may be keeping an accurately tuned thermostat to keep the air temperature just so, while others may be more focused on keeping their home’s indoor air quality at its peak level. One thing that often goes unnoticed is the important role that proper moisture levels play in preserving a comfortable home. That’s where a dehumidifier moves in to the picture. A lot of climates, like the one in Reeds Spring, 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 overstated, there are times when you note a change in the moisture levels, and you definitely notice when the humidity reaches an uncomfortable level. So instead of trying to deal with high humidity by turning down 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 hinges on where you live in Reeds Spring. In some spots it can be pretty easy to note 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 considering a dehumidifier is that it doesn’t have to be hot in order for it to be humid. You commonly come across these times during the spring and fall, in the late evening and early morning hours, or on drizzly, overcast days.
