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.

Tom and I would like to take a moment to thank you for your recent visit to inspect and clean our heating equipment. As always, we received your normal professional and informative information. We consider you the most knowledgeable person we have ever dealt with when it comes to our heating and cooling equipment. When you put in our new system a few years ago you advised us on what would work best for our home and we were very pleased with what we decided to have installed.

We have been dealing with you for years and would not consider contacting anyone else when we have a problem or for our annual inspection. We do not hesitate to recommend you to all of our family and friends whenever they have a need for a top notch heating and air specialist.
