July 15, 2015

Relief is a personal deal and achieving your home’s ideal comfort level is something the team at Cool Power LLC is ready to assist you in achieving. Of course, being comfortable and avoiding AC repair is something all homeowners can agree they expect from their home comfort system. There are obvious things that you can control to advance your personal comfort, including your thermostat, but a less visible thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays an important role in how comfortable you feel in your house and it’s regularly overlooked. The moisture levels in your home could be hurting your comfort levels along with your indoor air quality, that’s how a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.

As the seasons change in Ronkonkoma, we have times where the humidity feels absolutely unbearable. While you may assume lowering your thermostat is the solution, 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 some signs to look for:

  • Musty odors
  • Cracked paint
  • The air feels wet
  • 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.

Before you spend all your time assessing signs of too much humidity in your home, give the team at Cool Power LLC in Ronkonkoma a call at 631-246-4029. Our educated experts can assist you on the best ways to keep your home comfortable at the perfect amount of humidity.
