Humidity plays a crucial role in how comfortable you feel in your living space and it’s regularly overlooked. The moisture levels in your home are possibly hindering your comfort levels in addition with your indoor air quality, that’s how a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.

As the seasons change in West Palm Beach, we have times where the humidity feels absolutely miserable. While you may think 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%. Other than feeling uncomfortable, how do you know if you have too much humidity in your home?

There are a few indicators to look for:

  • Musty odors
  • Cracked paint
  • The air feels thick
  • 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 very uncomfortable. Fall and late spring are regularly high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
