How to Control Your Home’s Humidity

In states with cold winter climates, the dry air caused by your heating system can make homes very uncomfortable, and the humid summer air can do the same. Though your HVAC system helps to control your home’ humidity, it sometimes needs a little bit of assistance. By installing a whole home humidifier or dehumidifier, you can properly manage your home’s moisture without relying entirely on your air conditioner or furnace.

How Humidity Relates to Your HVAC System

humidity control in Rockford homeYour AC unit should, as stated above, be able to control the moisture level in your home. If it’s failing to do so, you may not be experiencing the level of home comfort that you want. Older, inefficient systems, or systems that were improperly installed may not be up to the job. Additionally, if you are in an environment with very high humidity levels, your air conditioning system alone may not be enough to dehumidify the air.

The same goes for heating systems. In the winter, low humidity in your home can lead to dry skin and nasal passages, aggravated sinuses, and other annoying symptoms.

Benefits of Installing a Whole Home Dehumidifier in Your HVAC System

The most reliable and efficient way to ensure there are correct moisture levels in your home is by installing a dehumidifier directly on your HVAC system. This unit will work with your HVAC system to pull excess water from the air before it moves through your ducts. It will give you the ability to manage both the temperature and humidity levels in your home.

To assure you’re purchasing the right dehumidifier for your home, contact a team of expert HVAC contractors to assist you. They’ll be able to provide you insights into which unit will best fulfill your needs.

Benefits of Installing a Whole Home Humidifier in Your HVAC System

When temperatures drop in the winter, low humidity becomes just as big of a problem as high humidity was in the summer—pair that with the dehumidification properties of your furnace, and that can lead to a very uncomfortable home. That’s why it’s so beneficial to install a humidifier right on your HVAC system. This unit can add moisture to your air before it’s pushed through the ducts in your home.

In the winter, research indicates that your indoor humidity should be between 40 and 60 percent for health and home comfort. Having a whole home humidifier installed will help you achieve that.
