Whether the humidity level is too high or too low in your Jupiter, Florida, home, you’ll feel uncomfortable. If you notice that your windows are constantly fogging up and there’s excess condensation on your ceilings, your humidity level is too high. Let’s explore four ways that you can control humidity levels in your home to stay comfortable throughout the year.
Use the Exhaust Fans
Bathrooms and kitchens are notorious for trapping hot and moist air inside. When using the bathrooms or kitchen in your home, make sure you turn on the exhaust fans. This is especially important if you’re cooking or taking a hot shower.
Install a Dehumidifier
High humidity levels can cause a whole host of problems, which includes encouraging dust mites to thrive. You’ll feel uncomfortable with increased moisture in the air. The optimum solution is to install a whole-home dehumidifier in your home. A whole-home dehumidifier integrates with your existing HVAC system to help rid your home of excess moisture.
Run Your Air Conditioner
Even when the temperature begins to drop, running your air conditioner can help to control humidity levels in your home. When warm and moist air interacts with your existing HVAC system, the cold evaporating coil can help to condense water vapor from the air. This is then collected and drained away before the humid air has a chance to enter your home.
Keep Up on Maintenance
Make sure to keep regular maintenance up on your HVAC system to ensure that it runs efficiently year round. Consider investing in a maintenance agreement from Mechanical Air Conditioning to be sure that your system is serviced on a regular basis.
There’s no need to put up with excessively high or low humidity levels in your house. Use these strategies to bring the perfect balance of humidity into your home. Contact Mechanical Air Conditioning at 561-899-4587 to learn more about improving your home’s indoor air quality.
