The air in our part of the country is not particularly known for high humidity levels, but that doesn’t mean you’ll never find yourself dealing with excessively humid air in your residence. If you are at all concerned about the early warning signs of high humidity, which we’ll detail a bit below, just let a member of our team know. We install whole-house dehumidifiers in Fort Collins, CO, and we always do the job right. Don’t waste your time messing about with ineffective and inconvenient portable dehumidifiers in your home. Instead, schedule service with the pros on our staff, and ensure that the air in your home is sufficiently dry.
What Are the Signs of High Humidity?
Chances are that you’ve heard someone say, “it’s not the heat, it’s the humidity” at some point. There is some truth in this saying, actually, though it’s a bit of an oversimplification. Very humid air does indeed retain heat very effectively, which can make you feel even more uncomfortable than you otherwise would. However, it also impedes the evaporation of sweat on your skin, which is your body’s natural cooling system. If your skin constantly feels sticky and hot, you may have too much humidity in the air in your home.
Not only will excess humidity leave you feeling less comfortable, but it can also lead to damage to your property. If you notice signs of wood rot in your home, if you see mold beginning to take root, or if the wooden floorboards are starting to warp, it could be because your home is just too humid within.
If you notice these warning signs in your household, contact Fort Collins Heating & Air Conditioning to inquire about the whole-house dehumidifiers available to you.
