How To Fight Humidity In Your Home

As any Georgia resident knows, it’s really humid here. We deal with warm, sticky weather a good part of the year, and we certainly don’t want to feel it in our homes. Indoor moisture is uncomfortable and can pose real threats to your air quality and home. But how can you argue with nature?

Absolute Comfort Air is here to tell you exactly what to do to make sure humidity doesn’t affect your Winder, GA indoor air quality. With years of experience regulating home air health, our team has your back. Keep reading to find out the top ways to lower the humidity in your home!

Ventilate, Ventilate, Ventilate

Home ventilation is your biggest option when trying to push moisture out of your home. No, we don’t mean opening a window to let the air out. All homes are built with specific ventilation measures in place to make sure that healthy air circulation can occur. For instance, your bathrooms, kitchens and attic all have vents to expel moist or hot air outside. Make sure all of these devices are operational and start enforcing their use in your home. The simple act of venting a little more air out of your home will make it easier for the air to be regulated at lower humidity levels.

Invest In A Good AC

One of the most undervalued services an air conditioner is responsible for is dehumidifying your air. When air is sucked to your AC unit to be cooled or heated, it is also supposed to lose the moisture it holds before reentering your home. It’s possible that an AC upgrade or replacement is necessary to get your home the powerful dehumidification it needs. 

Reduce Heat In Your Home

In the summer months specifically, you can be strategic about the heat that is created in your home. Using your oven, stove and dryer creates a lot of heat around the house that is like an invitation for moisture to linger. Similarly, hot showers that steam up your bathroom with moisture could be reduced so that humidity doesn’t spread throughout the home. 

Avoid Leaks

Do everything you can to identify and repair leaks as quickly as they occur. If you remember to maintain your roof, gutters, attic and plumbing, then you reduce the risk of leaks forming in your home. If you already have a leak, make sure it is completely repaired, then dry out all affected areas. If you have damp carpets, walls or floors after 24 hours of being flooded or wet, you risk mold growth. Humidity is mold’s best friend, and none of us want to deal with mold.

Assess Your House Plants

While indoor plants can be both beautiful and helpful to detoxifying your indoor air of pollutants, they are also very moist. You might want to try moving large amounts of plants to one isolated room or outside temporarily. If the humidity lowers or is more controllable, you may have found your culprit.

Invest In A Whole-Home Dehumidifier

A dehumidifier attached to your entire air supply is the professional solution to reducing your stubborn humidity levels. With so much air moving through your home in a day, you might need some extra help from a system specifically designed to remove water from the air. If you don’t want to worry about your humidity levels anymore, this might be the solution for you.

Had Us Up and Running in a Couple of Hours

Tanner was our service tech. Our heat quit on a Friday night and I called Absolute Comfort Air on Saturday morning. Tanner came to our home about an hour and a half after my phone call and diagnose the problem, explained the circumstances, and gave me a detailed quote. He then proceeded to make the repair.  He worked steadily and had us up and running in a couple of hours. Tanner was very polite, explained things in detail, and answered my questions very patiently. Thank you for a job well done.

I’ve been without heat since Saturday when my heat pump went out. I called Absolute Comfort and Alex came out and confirmed that after 19 years it had died. Kevin came out yesterday morning and he and Mark came this morning to check on things. Wayne and D.J. installed my new system. My house is warmer than it’s been in years and I wanted to thank you all for the fast, courteous and efficient manner you took care of my problem. Y’all are simply the best!!
