What is better? To have air that is to dry or too moist? Where I live, we get both. I am familiar with the worst of both situations. Too dry is a problem. Air that is too moist is also a problem. It is a difficult challenge to maintain your home’s air at just the perfect amount of humidity year round. There are, fortunately, are HVAC units control humidity levels. The heating and cooling equipment links to a smart thermostat for proper control. The thermostat alerts you of ideal humidity levels in the home. Houses that do not have the ability to properly regulate moisture should either choose a dehumidifier or humidifier. Why is it important to remove or add moisture to your household air? Too much moisture inside the house can attract all kinds of bugs. Your will get more cockroaches, centipedes and dust mites, because these pests love moisture. They will crawl right into your home and start breeding and multiplying. Another alarming thing about excessive moisture is the likelihood of mold. Mold, mildew, fungi and other bacteria are results of moisture. It can grow on your walls and on the cooling coil of your A/C unit. It then introduces harmful spores in the breathing air and threatens the health of your family. So then what can you do about a lack of moisture? You might have trouble with electronic devices like laptops, and other low voltage appliances. You might have static in your clothes. You may suffer from dry sinus passages, coughing, chapped lips, and other health concerns. The wood furniture in your household will also split because of dry air. The good news is that you can regulate moisture levels. Talk to an HVAC professional for advice.
