How Can I Lower the Humidity Level in My Home?

Do you know the different factors that could be affecting the indoor air quality of your home? You might not be aware of what humidity can do, besides making you feel hotter. Here’s the lowdown:

What Does Humidity in Your Home Do?

Humidity can do many things. In a controlled environment, it can be healthy and help keep your belongings, and your sinuses, totally happy. Seasonally, however, it can have a big impact.

In the summer, controlling the humidity is key so you don’t have damage and swelling of the wood in your home or mold and mildew growth that can propagate in a warm, humid environment. It’s also important to control the humidity so you use less energy cooling your home, because it will feel cooler the less humid it is.

What Does Humidity Have to Do With Indoor Air Quality?

Mold and seasonal allergens are both big issues when it comes to the air in your house. If the humidity is too high in the summer, you risk issues such as sinus congestion, itchy eyes, sore throat, headaches, fatigue, and other allergy symptoms. These are the unfortunate side effects that tend to go along with the presence of mold and mildew as well as pollen, dust, and other pollutants that can be aggravating to even the least allergic among us.

Controlling humidity is important in every season and having the right HVAC system and accessories, including a good air conditioning system and a dehumidifier, will help you keep your house comfortable while letting you breathe easier.
