Dehumidifiers: Keeping your home dry for more home comfort

Complete home comfort can have differing definitions for different homeowners, which makes sense given our own distinct comfort needs. However, there is always something that all homeowners have in common – the desire to be comfortable inside their home and avoid AC repair. For some it may be keeping a well tuned thermostat to keep the air temperature perfect, while others may spend their time on keeping their home’s indoor air quality at its top level. One thing that often goes under-the-radar is the crucial role that appropriate moisture levels play in sustaining a comfortable home. That’s where a dehumidifier enters the picture.

Most climates, like the one in Hamilton, have times in which they are dry and others when it’s so humid that it feels like you could be in a rainforest. While that may be a tad inflated, there are times when you notice a change in the moisture levels, and you definitely notice when the humidity reaches an uncomfortable level. So instead of trying to cope with high humidity by changing your thermostat while your air conditioner is working, why not consider a dehumidifier?

So how do you know if you have too much moisture in your home? Some of that hinges on where you live in Hamilton. In some places it can be pretty easy to note humidity problems, and sometimes they do a darn good job at hiding. However, the most common signs of too much moisture include:

  • Areas that are typically damp
  • Musty odors
  • Cracked or flaking paint
  • Condensation stains on the ceiling or walls
  • A sticky feel to the air
  • Condensation or frost on your windows
  • Peeling wallpaper

One important thing to keep in mind when considering a dehumidifier is that it doesn’t have to be hot in order for it to be humid. You usually find these times during the spring and fall, in the late evening and early morning hours, or on dreary, overcast days.
