Coziness is a personal issue and achieving your home’s ideal comfort level is something the team at Comfort Zone Inc is ready to assist you in achieving. Of course, being 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 control to help your personal comfort, such as your thermostat, but a less obvious thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays a crucial role in how comfortable you feel in your house and it’s often overlooked. The moisture levels in your home might be affecting your comfort levels partnered with your indoor air quality, that’s how a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.

As the seasons alter in Cape Coral, we have days where the humidity feels absolutely insufferable. While you may consider lowering your thermostat is the answer, it might be time to consider a dehumidifier. The optimal humidity for your health and comfort is between 30-50%. Other than feeling uncomfortable, how do you know if you have too much humidity in your home?

There are a few issues to look for:

  • Musty odors
  • Cracked paint
  • The air feels thick
  • Condensation or frost on your windows
  • Peeling wall paper

We often 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 usually high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
