Comfort is a personal deal and achieving your home’s model comfort level is something the team at McNatt Inc is ready to support you in achieving. Of course, staying comfortable and avoiding AC repair is something all homeowners can agree they look for from their home comfort system. There are simple things that you can change to improve your personal comfort, like your thermostat, but a less apparent thing is the humidity levels. Humidity plays a major role in how comfortable you feel in your home and it’s often overlooked. The moisture levels in your home are possibly hindering your comfort levels partnered with your indoor air quality, that’s how a whole-home dehumidifier comes in as a comfort savior.

As the seasons change in Corpus Christi, we have times where the humidity feels absolutely miserable. While you may think lowering your thermostat is the fix, it might be time to consider a dehumidifier. The adequate humidity for your health and comfort is between 30-50%. Besides feeling uncomfortable, how do you know if you have too much humidity in your home?

There are a few signs to look for:

  • Musty odors
  • Cracked paint
  • The air feels sticky
  • Condensation or frost on your windows
  • Peeling wall paper

We usually associate humidity with heat, but it doesn’t have to be hot to be humid. The heat just makes the humidity more uncomfortable. Fall and late spring are usually high humidity seasons and times when it’s raining or early in the morning and evening.
