Does Your Home Have Too Much Humidity?

If you have wooden floors in your kitchen and the felt pads on your chairs are not sliding easily like they usually do, then you know the humidity level is too high. With the recent rains and the absence of any significant sunny days, the net result is a quick rise in the relative humidity.

To resolve this problem you would normally turn on the A/C to improve your comfort. But when the outside temps are in the 60’s it wouldn’t be very comfortable to run the air conditioning.

The solution for Too Much Humidity

The only practical solution is to run a dehumidifier. And to also turn on the blower in your furnace. Most box store dehumidifiers come in a size for 1 or 2 rooms. To dehumidify an entire house you need a pro-grade unit. This unit can remove over 20 gallons of water in a 24 hour period. They can also be tied into the duct system which will improve overall performance and also reduce the running time of the A/ C system.

Summertime humidity level should be in the 4550% range for maximum comfort and to minimize any respiratory issues. If your home has too much humidity, higher levels of humidity, give us a call for a free in-home evaluation.
