Maintaining the right indoor humidity level can improve a home’s comfort and help the occupants stay healthier.
However, achieving and maintaining the correct humidity in the air requires constant HVAC equipment and humidifier adjustment throughout the year. During summer, running your air conditioner to circulate cool air in your home might remove humidity from your indoor air. In this case, the air conditioner does not only cool your home but also removes excess moisture from your indoor air to improve its quality. Use ventilation fans during hot days to combat the excess moisture. It may be easy to ignore the moisture generated by your everyday activities. However, even low amounts of moisture added into your ambient air can cause home discomfort. Exhaust or ventilation fans can significantly reduce the amount of humidity hanging around after hot water baths. Consider reducing your hot water usage to keep your humidity levels in check. Install a dehumidifier to give your home the extra defense it needs to stay cooler. During winter, invest in a whole-home humidifier. Cold winter months come with dry air that reduces indoor moisture levels in your home. Turning on your heater might also reduce your indoor moisture content further. Low moisture levels can cause itchy skin, nosebleeds, and regular colds all too often. A whole-home humidifier eliminates these discomforts by adding a specified amount of moisture to your home. This HVAC equipment has an adjustable control system that allows you to set your desired moisture amount to keep your house comfortable throughout the cold winter season.
