Relief is a personal issue and achieving your home’s model comfort level is something the team at Ocean Air Conditioning and Heating is ready to support you in achieving. Of course, remaining comfortable and avoiding AC repair is something all homeowners can agree they expect from their home comfort system. There are simple things that you can change to advance your personal comfort, such as your thermostat, but a less visible thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays a crucial role in how comfortable you feel in your home and it’s regularly overlooked. The moisture levels in your home could be hurting your comfort levels along with your indoor air quality, that’s when a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.
As the seasons alter in Laguna Niguel, we have stints 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 ideal humidity for your health and comfort is between 30-50%. In addition to feeling uncomfortable, how do you know if you have too much humidity in your home?
There are some 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 very uncomfortable. Fall and late spring are regularly high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
