Use Humidifiers & Dehumidifiers to Improve Indoor Air Quality Admit it. We tend to fixate on what the meteorologist tells us will happen here in Waldorf. The weather outlook controls our schedules, and can even alter our emotions. And what we may not realize is that weather patterns impact everything inside our homes, from furniture to our family’s health. Of course, we’re referring to humidity left uncontrolled. Balancing humidity is similar to balancing a low-carb diet. Too much or too little could be harmful. But it is possible to find that perfect spot. When there is too much moisture in the home, the air gets stuffy and feels warmer than actual temperatures. Microbes, mildew, fungi, bacteria, and viruses flourish in this environment. When there’s not enough moisture, skin can become dry, throats get sore, and wooden furniture, flooring and walls—and even instruments—can warp. Humidity levels between 35% and 50% are perfect for comfort. But if you want an environment that’s free from microbes and that won’t damage wood, the humidity levels will be best between 45% and 50%. A steam humidifier and a dehumidifier are the answer. Whole-home central humidifiers control humidity within 1% of the recommended levels throughout your home, creating a healthier home, lessening dry sinuses, itchy skin and sore throats, and keeping wood from cracking or warping. It may also reduce the occurrences of bacteria, viruses and respiratory infections. Whole-home central dehumidifiers eliminate extra moisture, lessen dust mites and mold, and also protect wood from damage. Plus, they are much easier to use and less intrusive than bulky one-room products. Regardless of the forecast for Waldorf, humidity will repeatedly be a factor in your home.
