Many people experience a clammy feeling in their homes when they are running their air conditioning day and night. This wet and clammy feeling is due to the humidity level in your home.
There are two things that make for the perfect comfort level in a home: temperature and humidity. Humans are the most comfortable between 70 and 80 degrees and about 30 to 60 percent humidity.
Your air conditioner does a really good job of controlling the temperature in your home because that is what it is meant to do. But it can't really control the humidity in your home.
Not only will you be more comfortable with a relative humidity level between 30 to 60 percent, but anywhere outside of that range is also where viruses, mold, bacteria have a harder time surviving. So, it's a win-win.
There can be several causes for high humidity, one being that you have an air conditioning unit that is too large for your home.
A dehumidifier is the best way to achieve a comfortable humidity level in your home if you experience this clammy feeling in the summer.
