How Humidity Control Can Help Your Family Be More Comfortable

By: Del-Air Heating and Air Conditioning

Unfortunately, humidity is simply a fact of life in Florida. As annoying as humidity can be, it can cause some serious damage to your home. Excess moisture can get trapped inside your home and cause your flooring and walls to warp, damage your furniture, and cause mold and mildew growth. Controlling the humidity in your home is important to preserve your home and keep you and your family comfortable and safe. Our Orlando air conditioning service professionals can help.

Signs You Need Humidity Control for Your Home

As a home owner, you probably want to keep your home in top shape. Humidity can be a difficult enemy to battle, but there are a few signs which can indicate that excess humidity is wreaking havoc in your home.

Condensation on Windows

This may be one of the first signs you notice. If your windows have a noticeable build-up of condensation, the humidity in your home is likely very high. This moisture is probably seeping into the floors and walls of your home, and can degrade the structural integrity.

Presence of a Musty Odor

Another easily noticeable sign, a persistent, musty smell is a sign of mold or mildew. Often, you’ll encounter this symptom in enclosed spaces, such as garages, basements, cabinets, or closets. Excess moisture can lead to mold or mildew growth.

Visible Mold or Mildew Growth

Mold and mildew can thrive in humid conditions, and can be very destructive on their own. Mold and mildew prefers damp, dark, warm spaces, so it’s important to check your home’s cabinets, closets, and other potentially mold-friendly sites. If allowed to spread, mold and mildew can cause serious health issues for your family.

Allergy Attacks

Both excess humidity and mold can trigger an increase in allergy attacks for sensitive members of your family. If someone in your home has been coughing or sneezing more than normal, it can be a sign of excess moisture trapped in your home. Headaches and general discomfort can also signal there is a quality issue with your home’s air.

Solving Excess Humidity Problems

So, your home has excess humidity issues. Now what? Our Orlando air conditioning experts have the answer. Dehumidifiers are an excellent tool to remove excess moisture in and maintain a safe humidity level in your home. A dehumidifier can also filter out allergens, creating a healthier home for your family. Investing in a dehumidifier can also help you save on energy, since it reduces the strain on your air conditioning system and can increase its efficiency.

This was my first experience with Del-Air and they were prompt, professional, and knowledgeable. They were able to get me in on the same day for a maintenance visit, which I wasn’t expecting but very much appreciated. The office staff was pleasant and so was the technician that came out to service my air conditioners. Thanks…
