Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Air Quality
Repair

Whole 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 on their wants list – the desire to be comfortable inside their home and dodge AC repair. For some it may be keeping a perfectly tuned thermostat to keep the air temperature perfect, while others may focus on keeping their home’s indoor air quality at its peak level. One thing that often goes unnoticed is the crucial role that proper moisture levels play in maintaining a comfortable home. That’s where a dehumidifier moves in to the picture.

Many climates, like the one in Marietta, have times in which they are dry and others when it’s so humid that it feels like you could be in a rainforest. While that may be a tad overstated, there are times when you recognize a change in the moisture levels, and you surely notice when the humidity reaches an uncomfortable level. So instead of trying to get by with high humidity by changing your thermostat while your air conditioner is running, 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 Marietta. In some spots it can be pretty easy to note humidity problems, and sometimes they do a very good job at hiding. However, the most common signs 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 contemplating a dehumidifier is that it doesn’t have to be hot in order for it to be humid. You usually find these times during the spring and fall, in the late evening and early morning hours, or on rainy, overcast days.
