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.

Repair technician inspected newly installed thermostat, found installation error, and repaired. He then inspected the air handler and outside compressor. Discovered freon was leaking, topped off freon to hold me over, and made recommendations for future repairs and upgrades.

Response time was great - next day service, on a Saturday. Service fee was very reasonable, and the technician was polite, professional, and informative.
