Let’s Talk About Humidity

Humidity is a common problem in many homes. It builds up during the hottest days of the summer and lingers into the evening and overnight, making you uncomfortable, worsening allergies and asthma, and even causing damage to woodwork and fixtures. That’s why proper dehumidification is an important aspect of any home comfort system.

Choosing a dehumidifier can be complex. You need to know how big of a device is needed, how large of a space needs to be dehumidified, and how much power it needs to operate.

If you’re concerned about high humidity levels inside your home, contact the South Georgia area dehumidification experts at Air Pro Heating & Cooling. Our skilled technicians will assess your home’s humidity situation and help you select a dehumidifier. Once chosen, they will professionally install the unit to provide long-term home comfort and peace of mind.

High Humidity Dangers

What exactly can high humidity do to your home? To start, humidity is a cause of many organic and biological contaminants. Even things as simple as dust mites won’t grow out of control unless humidity levels get above 50%. The big worry, though, is mold.

Mold spores thrive in high humidity environments, not just in your vents and woodwork, but in the very air you breathe. Excessive mold in your home’s air will make you sick and cause damage throughout the building. It needs to be stopped before it can form and only a dehumidifier will help do that.

Beyond the health risks of high humidity, it creates an environment that’s not comfortable. Humidity levels higher than 70% create thick, sluggish air that’s hard to breathe and incredibly uncomfortable. You may even find that humidity begins to swell the joints in furniture and causes damage to the fixtures in your home.

Installation and Maintenance

Once you choose a good dehumidifier, the installation and maintenance process is straightforward. First, the square footage and humidity levels of your home must be measured. Proper humidity can only be attained if a dehumidifier is purchased based on accurate measurements.

After that, you must decide if you want each room of your house dehumidified or the entire structure. There are multiple options, but ultimately it depends on the size and scope of your heating and cooling system and how many rooms you need to keep comfortable.
