How High Humidity Becomes a Surefire Problem

Humidity Control: The Guaranteed Secret to the Most Comfortable Home Possible

A home with high humidity can be concerning, as it can lead to dampness and the growth of harmful bacteria and fungi around walls, floors, and windows. These microbes can cause health issues like allergies and respiratory illnesses. One of the most common reasons for indoor humidity is a malfunctioning or oversized air conditioning system. If you notice excess humidity, consider downsizing the system or resolving the issue by cleaning the coils, adjusting airflow, or adding a dehumidifier.

Humidity Settings

Energy Recovery Ventilation (ERV) systems are similar to heat Modern HVAC systems come with built-in adjustable humidity settings. For most homes in spring, summer, and fall, the ideal humidity setting ranges from 30% to 50%. However, during winter, it’s essential to maintain humidity around 20% to prevent condensation buildup on windows and walls. If your HVAC system isn’t maintaining the desired humidity level, it may require attention from a trained HVAC professional. Excess moisture indoors can lead to dampness, rot, mold, allergies, and an increased risk of respiratory illnesses.
