Did you know that a humid house can make it feel 10° – 20° warmer than it actually is? Yeah — we see you scratching your head and staring at the thermostat! It’s not your imagination, but it still poses a problem. And it goes well beyond simply, being uncomfortable – excessively high humidity levels can cause severe damage to things inside your home.
Why Control Humidity?
Put simply, humidity is the measure of moisture present in the air and it dictates how we feel temperature. When it’s high, it can make things feel sticky and wet and it makes it harder for our bodies to cool down. With that said, it can cause paint to peel and wooden objects to expand – not to mention, mold and mildew thrive in humid conditions.
Ways to Control Humidity
When humidity levels inside your home are high during the summer months, it’s vital to take them back down to comfortable levels. Have a damn or musty kitchen or basement area? A dehumidification solution will surely help! Not only will it help preserve things inside your home such as furniture, art and woodwork, it can help you save on energy bills, too!
