Perfect Humidity At Home For Your Comfort

Now that the weather is getting colder, you may be wondering how to keep your home at a comfortable temperature and humidity level. There are many things you can do to help regulate the temperature in your house without breaking the bank. This blog will discuss the perfect humidity at home for your comfort.

The Best Humidity Levels For Home

The humidity levels in your home should be between 30-50%. This level of humidity is best for human comfort. Low humidity can cause dryness and discomfort, especially in the throat, nose, skin, and eyes. Higher than normal humidity may cause mold or mildew growth. The excess moisture could also affect items you have stored in your home including books, fabrics, furniture, and even photographs.

Managing Humidity Level During The Fall Season

To maintain the proper humidity levels in your home, there are several simple options you can consider. One recommendation is to turn off your forced air system when it's not being used. Putting your heating system in "fan-only" mode before turning it off will reduce how much moisture is introduced into the living space. Also, remember to regularly change or clean out the furnace filters which will help with efficiency and also keep down on any allergens that could be accumulating in your ducts because of the heat-trapping them inside.

What Type Of Humidifier Is Good For Your Home?

The type of humidifier you choose will depend on the humidity level in your home. If the humidity is low, a warm mist vaporizer is a good option because it adds moisture to the air without too much risk of mold or mildew growth. If you have high humidity levels, a cool-mist humidifier would be best since it won't cause additional heat and moisture in your home. You can also add some plants into your living space that will help regulate and maintain humidity levels.

A dehumidifier can be a great addition to your home, especially if you have a basement or crawlspace. Empty rooms and storage areas should also be kept somewhat dryer than the rest of your home for climate control. A small portable unit will make sure this area is always available for storage. In an office setting, you want to make sure that it doesn't get too humid, which may cause problems with sensitive equipment like computers and printers.

If you have any questions about humidifiers, call A-Plus Quality in Greater Toronto Area today. And we will gladly consult you.

  • Water is Leaking on my Furnace

    Water falling on to the furnace can harm your heating unit by affecting the control boards and other components enclosed in the furnace. There can be many causes to the water overflow, but the most common cases in the summer is the ice build up inside the evaporator coil due to low refrigerant level. Water build up can also be due to the evaporator coil having a crack on the base, if this is the case contact us by booking an appointment or call us today to have a technician come have a look at your unit and repair this issue before it causes excessive damage.  

  • How do I know what size unit I need?
    If you have any problems with your system, you should contact the contractor who installed the units. All our systems are covered by a 5 year parts, 7 year compressor limited warranty
  • Why is there ice building up on the copper pipes?

    There can be many reasons why the refrigerant pipes are freezing up but the most common issue is low refrigerant levels. If your AC unit has ice buildup turn off the unit for at least 4 hours and call us at 416-410-0337

  • Furnace is blowing cold air in Winter?

    This can be due to Ignition lockout, sometimes could be resolved by resetting the power  and if this does not resolve the issue you should contact a certified gas technician from A-Plus Quality to get this problem resolved!
