Total home comfort can have a different meaning for different homeowners, which makes sense given our individual comfort needs. However, there is always something that all homeowners have in their minds – the desire to be comfortable inside their home and avoid AC repair. For some it may be keeping a perfectly tuned thermostat to keep the air temperature just so, while others may spend their time on keeping their home’s indoor air quality at its optimum level. One thing that often goes unnoticed is the critical role that suitable moisture levels play in maintaining a comfortable home. That’s where a dehumidifier comes in to the picture.
Many climates, like the one in Haines City, have moments in which they are dry and others when it’s so humid that it feels like you might be in a rainforest. While that may be a bit overstated, there are times when you notice a change in the moisture levels, and you certainly notice when the humidity reaches an uncomfortable level. So instead of trying to cope with high humidity by turning down your thermostat while your air conditioner is working, why not consider a dehumidifier?
So how do you know if you have too much moisture in your home? Some of that hinges on where you live in Haines City. In some spots it can be pretty easy to note humidity problems, and sometimes they do a darn good job at hiding. However, the most common pointers 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 commonly come across these times during the spring and fall, in the late evening and early morning hours, or on rainy, overcast days.
