Does your home feel extra humid during the warmer months? Did you know that humidity levels above 65% can cause some serious health hazards? If you don’t have any idea how humid your home is or how you can keep them down at a comfortable level, we’ve got some helpful advice for you.
Humidity is the measure of the volume of moisture present in the air at any given time. It also dictates how we feel temperature. When humidity levels are high, it’s more difficult for our bodies to cool down and it can also increase the effects of any ailments we may have. Furthermore, too much moisture in the home can cause paint to peel and mold and mildew to grow which can come with some major costs to our homes as well our health.
How can you keep humidity to acceptable levels as the weather warms up outside? A dehumidification system is the solution you’ve been looking for. If your home has damp or musty areas (especially in the kitchen, bathroom or basement) or you’ve noticed condensation building up on the windows, these are all signs that there’s too much moisture in your home.
In addition to prevent mold and mildew growth, dehumidification systems can also help lower your energy bills. And on top of that, they’re very easy to use!
