If you feel this discomfort indoors, it’s easy to assume that there’s something wrong with the air conditioner. And while that may be the case, it could just mean that you need a dehumidifier in your home.
Do You Need a Dehumidifier?
Humidity is uncomfortable. It can also affect your health: Excess moisture breeds dust mites. Dust mites mean (sorry about this, but it’s true) dust mite feces. Add mold spores and bacteria growth, and you have a perfect recipe for asthma attacks and structural damage to your property.
A dehumidifier helps to prevent these issues. As if that weren’t reason enough, controlling the humidity inside your home means that your furniture will last longer, and for those with arthritis, it also means less joint pain.
So no matter how you look at it, yes, it would serve you well to install a dehumidifier in your Florida home.
What Is the Optimal Humidity Level for Your Florida Home?
The most advantageous humidity level will depend on the time of the year. During cooler months, set the dehumidifier to 60% humidity. During the warmer months, lower it to 40%. Not only will this keep your home comfortable, but you’ll also save money on your energy bills. This is because less humidity means the air conditioner won’t have to work as hard to remove excess moisture from the air.
