Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort07/15/2015Complete home comfort can mean different things for different homeowners, which makes sense given our unique comfort needs. However, there is always something that all homeowners have in common – the desire to be comfortable inside their home and prevent AC repair. For some it may be keeping a perfectly tuned thermostat to keep the air temperature just so, while others may spend their time on keeping their home’s indoor air quality at its optimum level. One thing that often goes unnoticed is the crucial role that appropriate moisture levels play in sustaining a comfortable home. That’s where a dehumidifier moves in to the picture. Most climates, like the one in Bossier City, have moments in which they are dry and others when it’s so humid that it feels like you might be in a rainforest. While that may be a bit overstated, there are times when you recognize a change in the moisture levels, and you definitely notice when the humidity reaches an uncomfortable level. So instead of trying to get by with high humidity by lowering your thermostat while your air conditioner is working, why not consider a dehumidifier? So how do you know if you have too much moisture in your home? Some of that depends on where you live in Bossier City. In some places it can be fairly easy to spot humidity problems, and sometimes they do a darn good job at hiding. However, the most common pointers 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 thinking about a dehumidifier is that it doesn’t have to be hot in order for it to be humid. You typically encounter these times during the spring and fall, in the late evening and early morning hours, or on dreary, overcast days.
