Chances are that, on a hot summer’s day, you have heard someone make the proclamation that it is, in fact, the humidity, and not the heat, causing your discomfort. This is true to a certain degree, but you must remember that having too little humidity in your home is every bit as detrimental to your comfort, and even your property, as excessive humidity is. To ensure that you are able to effectively balance the humidity level in your home, schedule your whole-house humidifier and/or dehumidifier services with a member of our team. That way, you can rest assured in knowing that the air in your home is appropriately humidified. Contact G & S Heating Cooling & Electric to learn more.
Is the Air in My Home Too Humid?
High humidity levels can really devastate your comfort, and it is not an issue that is confined to the great outdoors. If the air in your home is too humid, your household will likely feel quite stuffy and muggy. You may notice that there is a lot of condensation on your windows, your plumbing fixtures, exposed pipes, and other surfaces. If the situation is severe enough, there could be water damage to your home. A mildewy odor is quite likely to develop, and you may even be at risk of mold growth. Along with mold spores, other biological pollutants, such as viruses and bacteria, can thrive in damp, humid settings. A whole-house dehumidifier can help you to overcome and avoid such issues.
Is It Not Humid Enough?
Dry air can be just as problematic as overly humid air, of course. Very dry air can lead to very dry skin, which can be quite itchy, and may even crack and split. Your sinuses, throat, and nasal cavity may follow suit, causing sore throats or even bloody noses, while also making you more susceptible to illness. Your home is not safe from the ill effects of dry air either, as wooden floorboards may split, paint may chip, and wallpaper can crack. A whole-house humidifier is by far the most convenient and effective way in which to deal with any such problems, so call now to schedule service.
