It’s March, and early spring is coming – which, in our opinion, is a delightful time of year! But it also brings with it high levels of humidity that can harm both your home and your health. As the air warms up, moisture increases, and an uncomfortable atmosphere in your household is created, which leads to potential health problems from moisture-related illnesses. Furthermore, uncontrolled humidity can spell disaster for your property by damaging furniture, walls, and floors alike! You’re in luck – Troy Furnace & Air Conditioning has all the information to help you understand how dehumidification solutions can reduce indoor moisture. So, get ready as we dive into the sticky details! 


As temperatures begin to rise, the air in your home can start to accumulate excessive moisture that could be damaging both to your health and possessions. Moreover, it may even compromise your house. For those reasons, we firmly suggest checking the indoor air quality (IAQ) regularly with an eye towards maintaining proper humidity levels in order to protect you from potential risks caused by excessively damp conditions. So, if you suspect that your home has unusually high humidity levels, please keep reading! 


Health Advantages:      

Excess moisture in the home provides an ideal habitat for fungi, mold, mildew, and other bacteria, making living conditions dangerous. Although you might think it would be easy to identify any mold or mildew right away due to its smell or appearance, this isn’t always true. It can take a while before these spores make their appearance through walls or ceilings and can be detected. So, safeguarding your home against this stealthy intruder by ensuring precise humidity levels is prudent! If not kept in check, however, mold may become evident too late to address properly.  

Bear in mind, not only will installing a whole-home dehumidifier help prevent the growth of mold and mildew, but it’s also essential for the health of all family members. In addition, if anyone in your household has breathing issues such as asthma or allergies, introducing this beneficial technology can drastically improve their quality of life! 

House Advantages:      

Excessive humidity in the air can wreak havoc on your home as well, resulting in costly repairs due to warping. Unfortunately, increased humidity levels can lead to warping in household materials such as wood trim, doors, walls, ceilings, and other home materials. When this happens, it ultimately leads to lots of time, energy, and money wasted on repairs. 

Household Advantages:      

As a homeowner, we understand that you desire to protect your most valuable possessions. Unfortunately, when indoor humidity levels increase too much, its contents also become susceptible to moisture damage. From furniture made of wood to antiques and collectibles, humidity is one of the leading causes of disruption in these cases; hence, it’s important to take appropriate steps toward ensuring optimal moisture levels within the house. 


Are you unsure of whether or not high humidity levels are negatively impacting your home? Here are a few warning signs to identify this issue:  

1. An unrecognizable musty smell in the air  

2. Visible mold and mildew growths developing on surfaces  

3. Damp areas with water spots and/or condensed vapor stains are visible on surfaces 

4. Condensation gathering on windowsills and doors 

5. The deterioration of wooden furniture, walls, ceilings, doors panels, and other wood trimmings 


Surprisingly enough, the process is quite simple! Since warm air holds more moisture than cold air. If your home has an excessive level of humidity, then the dehumidifier’s fan will draw in the damp air, and then the air is blown over the dehumidifier’s internal coils. As the hot air passes through the component, the dehumidifier works to extract moisture from the air. This moisture is then converted into condensation and stored in a water reservoir within the device. As a last step, the dry air is returned to your home, giving you refreshingly clean air throughout!
