When your home is hot and humid, it doesn’t feel very good. It can easily make you hot and sweaty. However, you can do several things to get the humidity in your house back to where it should be.
Use Your Air Conditioner
Besides cooling your home, your air conditioner also removes humidity. You should have it tuned-up every spring so that it can effectively control humidity. A tune-up offers other benefits, too. Remember to change the air filters every few months, as dirty filters can cause your home to become more humid.
Comfort Pro, Inc. in Reading, PA tunes-up air conditioners. We’ll keep your AC system operating as it should year after year.
Use Exhaust Fans
Cooking and taking a shower increase humidity levels. Always turn the exhaust fan on when doing either task. You should leave the exhaust fan on for at least 10 minutes after you’re done in the kitchen or bathroom.
Take Colder Showers
When you take a hot shower, you introduce a lot of humidity into your home. Turn the heat down, even just a bit, so it doesn’t create as much humid air.
Buy a Dehumidifier
You can have Comfort Pro your local HVAC company install a whole-home dehumidifier. This device is installed in the heating and cooling system, and it removes moisture from the air passing through it.
Take Laundry Outside to Dry
Like most people, you probably have some clothes that can’t be put in the dryer. Rather than hanging them to dry indoors, place them outside on a clothesline to dry.
