Relief is a personal issue and achieving your home’s ideal comfort level is something the team at Ken Parker Service Inc is ready to help you achieve. Of course, being comfortable and avoiding AC repair is something all homeowners can agree they want from their home comfort system. There are evident things that you can change to help your personal comfort, like your thermostat, but a less obvious thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays a major role in how comfortable you feel in your living space and it’s regularly overlooked. The moisture levels in your home might be hurting your comfort levels in addition with your indoor air quality, that’s where a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.

As the seasons come and go in Greenville, we have stints where the humidity feels absolutely insufferable. While you may assume lowering your thermostat is the solution, it might be time to consider a dehumidifier. The optimal humidity for your health and comfort is between 30-50%. Besides feeling uncomfortable, how do you know if you have too much humidity in your home?

There are some issues to look for:

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

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