Coziness is a personal thing and achieving your home’s perfect comfort level is something the team at Summit Air Conditioning Inc 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 evident things that you can change to help your personal comfort, like your thermostat, but a less obvious thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays a crucial role in how comfortable you feel in your living space and it’s frequently overlooked. The moisture levels in your home could be hurting your comfort levels partnered 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 West Palm Beach, we have days where the humidity feels absolutely miserable. While you may assume lowering your thermostat is the fix, it might be time to consider a dehumidifier. The optimal 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 thick
  • 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.
