Read on for more info on why your home may be more humid than usual and the benefits of purchasing a dehumidifier.

Reasons For Indoor Mugginess

Do you find yourself damp and uncomfortable both inside and outside your house? There are many different reasons why humidity may have invaded your living spaces. Some of the most common reasons include:

  • Dirt, dust and debris clogging components and condenser coils
  • Frequent use of the stove without turning on exhaust fans
  • AC electrical wiring issues
  • Mold or mildew in damp, hidden areas
  • Frozen evaporator coils
  • An overcrowded home
  • Unrepaired or unreplaced components that are making your HVAC less efficient
  • Blocked air ducts that result in reduced air circulation

If you notice any of these signals in your own home – don’t hesitate to reach out to one of our AC experts as soon as possible!

Dehumidifier vs. Humidifier- Which One Should I Choose?

Interested in learning more about moisture in your air and which products combat high humidity levels?

Dehumidifiers are the best tools to combat mugginess in your home since they siphon the moisture out of your indoor air and pump it back outside. Most homeowners buy this appliance in the spring or summer due to naturally increased humidity levels from the weather outside. Dehumidifiers can also help reduce the effects of seasonal allergies by taking away some of the contaminants in your air.

Humidifiers create moisture and spread it throughout your home. This is best used when the air is too dry inside during the long winter months.

If you’re tired of feeling warm and sticky while doing normal activities, investing in a dehumidifier will lower the humidity and boost your comfort levels.
