Is My Home Too Humid?

Summers in Central Jersey are known for being hot and humid. This means the humidity level in your home could easily be too high. Is the air in your home too humid?

Watch for these signs of excessive indoor humidity (if you spot them, consider installing a dehumidifier to suck the moisture out of the air and make your home more comfortable):

  • Condensation: Take a close look at various cold surfaces in your home, including windows, metal air registers, and plumbing fixtures. Do they regularly collect beads of water? This is a result of excess moisture in the air condensing on a cold surface where the surrounding air is cool. Condensation is one of the most noticeable signs that your home is too humid.
  • Mold spots: Anywhere excess water sits, mold growth may follow. The most likely place for visible spots to appear is on the drywall in the bathroom or basement. You can combat this problem by running the exhaust fan when you shower. If mold spots appear elsewhere in your home, you should hire a professional to remove it and install a dehumidifier to prevent future growth.
  • Water stains: Sometimes, drywall bubbles and peels or yellow water stains appear when you have a leak behind the wall. Even high humidity in your home can cause these problems. Try to find the source of the water stains to help you decide if a dehumidifier could help.
  • Musty odors: Mold and mildew give off a recognizable smell. If you pick up on a musty odor anywhere in your home, it undoubtedly means mold is growing somewhere. Basements and garages are prone to these smells, where poor seals or seepage from groundwater can bring excess moisture into your home. Once you eliminate the source of the water intrusion, a dehumidifier should help prevent the musty odors from returning.
  • Heightened allergy symptoms: High humidity allows allergens such as dust mites and mold spores to thrive. Running a dehumidifier could be just what you need to reduce your symptoms and make your home more comfortable.
