Humidity plays an important role in how comfortable you feel in your living space and it’s frequently overlooked. The moisture levels in your home might be hindering your comfort levels in addition with your indoor air quality, that’s when a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.

As the seasons come and go in Midlothian, we have stints where the humidity feels absolutely unbearable. While you may think lowering your thermostat is the fix, it might be time to consider a dehumidifier. The ideal humidity for your health and comfort is between 30-50%. Besides feeling uncomfortable, how do you know if you have too much humidity in your home?

There are several signs to look for:

  • Musty odors
  • Cracked paint
  • The air feels sticky
  • 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 regularly high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
