If your home is too humid or too dry, your comfort is at risk, but so is your health and your wallet!
Humidity is often an overlooked aspect, but yet is very important. People are comfortable in temperatures between 70-80 degrees, but also between 30-60% relative humidity. The humidity in your home plays a big role in your comfort levels, but it can also influence things like viruses and dust mites.
On either end of the 30-60% relative humidity spectrum, viruses and dust mite tend to become more of an issue.
If you find yourself needing to set your thermostat over the normal 76 degrees in the winter, and if you set your air under about 72 degrees, that could be a sign that humidity is a problem in your home.
If humidity is an issue for you, a whole-house dehumidifier for the summer and a humidifier in the wintertime will help control the humidity, which will add to not only your comfort but make you healthier and bring your fuel costs down.
When you run your heat or air at extremes to combat the humidity, your using more energy, which drives you bills up significantly.
