Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers in Cherry Hill, NJ
Maintaining indoor comfort is only partially about managing the indoor temperatures with a heating and air conditioning system. It’s also about ventilation. A third part that people sometimes overlook is balancing indoor relative humidity. Excessively high or low humidity causes comfort issues, and also leads to health problems and even damage to surfaces and furnishing in a house.
So how do you create balanced humidity in your home? Portable humidifiers and dehumidifiers are not effective for an entire house, and they don’t allow enough control. The best option is to call on Gibson Heating & Cooling and ask us to install a whole-house humidifier and/or dehumidifier into your HVAC system. We put customers first and will do all we can to take care of your comfort and IAQ concerns. We serve Cherry Hill, NJ and throughout Burlington, Camden, and Bucks Counties.
The Problems with High and Low Humidity
Relative humidity is considered high when it is above 60% and low when it’s below 30%. Most people find a level of around 45% relative humidity to be the most comfortable.
High humidity makes hot weather feel hotter because the extra moisture in the air makes it harder for the body to release heat through the skin. High humidity can make 80°F feel like 90°F. High humidity levels also encourage the growth of molds and mildew, which is unhealthy and also causes damage to building material.
Low humidity creates an opposite problem: it makes cold weather have more of an edge because heat can escape too quickly from the body. Low humidity makes it easier for illnesses to spread (a major concern in winter) and causes cracking of wood surfaces and peeling of paint.
Finding the Best Humidifier or Dehumidifier for Your Home
Balancing humidity means you’ll feel better and save energy as well, since you won’t need to run your AC as much on hot days or your heater as much on cold ones. There are those other benefits to health and home as well. But the way to find the best dehumidifier or humidifier for your house isn’t to choose one yourself. Professional HVAC experts can locate the right humidity control options for you (whether you need one or the other or both) and then install them so they will do the actually balancing job you need, not end up pushing relative humidity too much in the other direction.
