The Importance of Humidity in Your Home

Home Repair

When you think of humidity, you probably get uncomfortable at the thought of the sticky feeling you get in the summertime when you can't get away from the heat and moisture. While extreme amounts of humidity are indeed unbearable at times, it is important to have a certain amount of it in your home in order for you to feel comfortable and healthy. Otherwise, you may need to call in a professional for heating repair in Minneapolis to fix whatever problem is making your humidity levels hover around the extreme. Here are a few reasons humidity can be important.

Your Health

Excessive indoor humidity may not cause you to break out in a sweat, but it can be harmful to your health. High levels of humidity can cause respiratory problems and exacerbate allergies, leading to itching, coughing, and sneezing. Air that is too dry can also cause health problems. Mucous membranes in your nose and throat can get dried out by breathing in air that does not contain enough moisture, likely resulting in a scratchy throat or nose, and putting you at greater risk for colds and other respiratory issues. 

Other symptoms of poor indoor air quality include wheezing, fatigue, dizziness, rashes, watery eyes, muscle pain, and frequent headaches. While many people would attribute these health conditions to other things, the air quality of your home should be checked immediately if you are experiencing any of the symptoms on this list as they may go away quickly once the correct humidity levels are set. 

Damage to Your Home

When heated air in your home isn't properly humidified, it can cause damage that may be expensive to repair. When there is too much moisture, the moist air can get trapped in corners, basements, and other closed areas. This will cause mildew and mold to form, which is not only damaging to whatever it touches, but is also a major health risk. If water is able to get between window moldings and weather stripping, the change in temperature will cause it to either freeze or expand, which can be problematic. Condensation on windows and walls can also cause structural damage to the home, as well as damage to nearby furniture. 

By normalizing humidity levels in your home, you are not only saving your home from unnecessary damage, but you are also keeping many of your fragile belongings safe. Expensive musical instruments such as pianos, guitars, and violins can go out of tune very quickly if the air quality is poor, and electronic equipment can build up static electric charges which may lead to the need for replacement more quickly. 

Energy Costs

Perhaps one of the main costs of running a home, besides the mortgage payment, is keeping the occupants comfortable with just the right temperature. Many family members battle the thermostat to find a setting that is just cool enough in the summer and just warm enough in the winter. What many people do not realize is that the humidity in the air greatly affects how warm it feels, which can be very important when it's extremely cold outside and all you want to do is feel cozy and comfortable inside. 

The humidity in the air inside a home determines how much heat the air can hold. Also, dry air robs your skin of moisture, making you feel colder. Thus, keeping the optimum humidity levels will help you to feel warmer without needing to turn up the thermostat. This can save you a lot of money on energy costs by not running your heater overtime.

If you feel like your humidity levels should be checked, call in a professional for heating repair in Minneapolis. Not only can you save money in the long run, but you may also experience better health and keep your home in good condition for many years to come.
