It’s time for homeowners to take action on controlling their indoor humidity levels to help keep the air indoors comfortable and clean, and prevent airborne allergies and sickness. While indoor humidity occurs naturally, it can often be controlled by a few home maintenance tasks.
- Increase air circulation: Stagnant air retains moisture causing an increase in humidity levels. Keeping your home’s air naturally circulating will allow built up moisture to dry quicker and remain at a comfortable level. Be sure to set your fans to the appropriate rotation for the season (see here for directions) and open windows when weather is nice to equalize indoor and outdoor humidity levels. In addition, be sure to keep your indoor air vents open and not blocked by furniture or curtains to increase overall airflow.
- Update your home’s weather-strips: When outdoor moisture levels are high, it is important for homeowners to be sure their home’s weather-stripping is updated and functioning properly to prevent the humid air from entering the home and help regulate indoor moisture levels. By doing so, homeowners will also improve energy efficiency and can help save money.
- Schedule a HVAC check up: The efficiency of your HVAC system is a crucial part of regulating your in-home humidity levels. With every seasonal transition, RighTime Home Services recommends scheduling an HVAC check up and tuning to be sure your system is functioning properly. This will help prevent unnecessary breakdowns and help keep your home comfortable all season long.
