There are simple things that you can adjust to help your personal comfort, such as your thermostat, but a less apparent thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays a crucial role in how comfortable you feel in your living space and it’s frequently overlooked. The moisture levels in your home could be affecting your comfort levels partnered with your indoor air quality, that’s where a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.

As the seasons alter in South Beloit and Belvidere, we have stints where the humidity feels absolutely unbearable. While you may consider lowering your thermostat is the answer, it might be time to consider a dehumidifier. The ideal humidity for your health and comfort is between 30-50%. In addition to feeling uncomfortable, how do you know if you have too much humidity in your home?

There are some indicators to look for:

  • Musty odors
  • Cracked paint
  • The air feels thick
  • Condensation or frost on your windows
  • Peeling wall paper

We normally associate humidity with heat, but it doesn’t have to be hot to be humid. The heat just makes the humidity very uncomfortable. Fall and late spring are regularly high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
