How to Maintain an Optimal Humidity Level in Your Home
Thursday, July 14, 2016

Keeping a constant level of about 35 to 55 percent humidity in your home offers a number of benefits. It helps to keep your family healthy, gets rid of those annoying static electricity zaps, helps to keep your flooring and furniture from cracking and even help your skin look younger.

3 Ways to maintain a healthy level of humidity in your home

1. Room humidifiers and dehumidifiers. One of the easiest ways to control the humidity level in your home is to add a room unit in those areas of the house where you spend the most time. However, the drawbacks are that you need to add or remove water regularly and such units only work in a limited area.

2. Install a moisture barrier. Today’s homes with their energy efficient windows are more prone than ever to an increase in the indoor moisture level and condensation at the top of your home. One way to keep this moisture in check is to install a vapor barrier in your attic. This keeps moisture from soaking into your walls and beams.

3. Whole house humidifying system. The most efficient way to control humidity in your home is to install a whole house system. Such systems attach to your cooling and heating systems and automatically adjust the moisture level, requiring very little maintenance from you.

My gas package system died on me this past February. I contacted All City Heat and Air for an estimate. The dispatcher was very nice and promptly scheduled an estimate the same day. The installation crew that came out (the next day after I had received the estimate!) was extremely polite and made sure to thoroughly clean up after they were finished.

I am glad that I stuck with this company (my friend had referred me since she had some work done by both Jeff and Ernie) because I feel that I would have been paying a lot more for a lot less with any of the other companies.

Jeff came out after the install was complete and took the time to answer my questions about operating the new thermostat and how to change my air filters, as well as giving me information on how to maintain my unit. Overall, it was an excellent experience. I would recommend to anyone!
