Do you want Humidity at home during the summer?

Most home owners know that a humidifier is of great benefit during the winter months. However, a frequently asked question by most home owners is, "Does one need humidity at home during the summer?" Maintaining adequate humidity during summer is just as important as winter. Maintaining balanced humidity is a very effective method of keeping the home comfortable and ensuring that the utility bills are under control. Once the right humidity level is maintained during summer, it ensures good health and helps you get a good sleep at night.

Humidiy -

If the home humidity is not balanced during the summer, you will either feel too cold or too hot (and sweaty). Signs that the humidity is too high in the summer include the following:

- The air in the home will feel real muggy.

- There may be presence of mildew or mold in the home

- Your allergies and asthmatic attacks will flare up

- There may be moisture stains on the walls and ceiling

If the humidity is low, then the following will be evident:

- Your skin will feel dry and itch

- Your nose and throat will feel dry

- The wooden furniture and other items may start to show cracks

- The painting on the walls and ceiling may show cracks and lines

- You will be zapped by bouts of static electricity

Without a humidifier in the summer, the home can feel very uncomfortable. That is because the humid air will make you feel hot and sticky. You sweating system will not work efficiently and you will feel like the clothes are sticking on your body.

Thus, humidifiers are essential in the summer. For the majority of homes, the most comfortable level of humidity is set between 40-55 percent. During summer, the humidity should be less than 50% so that one can breathe easily and feel comfortable. If the humidity is higher than 55%, there is a chance that dust mites and mold spores may multiple and cause allergies, coughing spells and constant sneezing. Plus, the high humidity will also damage your property.

"I noticed a difference..." - 5 out of 5 stars

I don't usually write these, but I just had to take a minute to say thank you. I had an appointment with Canaduct last week. Almost immediately after they left my home, I noticed a difference, particularly in my air. It has really improved! I cannot thank you enough for all of the hard work, and of course, the amazing results.
