Is the humidity in your home under control?
Excess moisture in your home can be obvious. You may smell musty odors, see mold growing or feel clammy. What you can sense is only part of the problem.
Allergies and Asthma
Whether it’s from air that’s trapped in a bathroom or basement, condensation on windows or moisture that seeps up through your carpeting, mold is common in many households. Molds can trigger allergy and asthma symptoms, causing everything from minor irritations, like nasal stuffiness and skin irritation, to fever and shortness of breath. Insects are also drawn to places where moisture is high. Dust mites—a major allergy and asthma trigger—thrive in environments where the relative humidity exceeds 50%.*
Home and Furnishing Damage
High humidity can lead to warping and damage to wood floors and trim. Moisture can also get trapped in carpeting, furniture and drapes. Family heirlooms, like photos, may also be at risk.
Overcooling is a costly— and ineffective—solution.
Air that has too much humidity in it actually makes you feel warmer. We’ve all heard the saying, it’s not the heat, it’s the humidity. That’s especially true in summer months when many homeowners make the mistake of overcooling their homes in an effort to mitigate high humidity. Not only do they end up expending more energy, they still can’t get comfortable because an air conditioner is not an effective dehumidifier.
Whether in the North or South, excess home humidity is a problem.
If you live in a northern climate, indoor humidity is especially pronounced in the summertime when the outdoor humidity is also high. You’re likely to notice it more in your basement, where moisture is easily trapped. Conversely, southern climates suffer from excess indoor humidity year-round, and may see a spike during winter months when it’s too cool for the air conditioner to run.
