Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Air Quality
Repair

Whole home comfort can have a different meaning 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 unrecognized is the critical role that appropriate moisture levels play in maintaining a comfortable home. That’s where a dehumidifier enters the picture.

Most climates, like the one in Osceola County, have periods in which they are dry and others when it’s so humid that it feels like you could be in a rainforest. While that may be a tad inflated, there are times when you notice 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 changing your thermostat while your air conditioner is running, why not consider a dehumidifier?

So how do you know if you have too much moisture in your home? Some of that is determined by where you live in Osceola County. In some places it can be fairly easy to spot humidity problems, and sometimes they do a pretty good job at hiding. However, the most common indicators 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 contemplating a dehumidifier is that it doesn’t have to be hot in order for it to be humid. You typically find these times during the spring and fall, in the late evening and early morning hours, or on drizzly, overcast days.
