Use Humidifiers & Dehumidifiers to Improve Indoor Air Quality Admit it. We tend to obsess over what the meteorologist tells us will happen here in West Palm Beach. The weather outlook controls our schedules, and can even affect our emotions. And what we may not realize is that weather patterns can also impact everything inside our homes, from furniture to your health. Of course, we mean the impact humidity can have when it isn’t monitored. Balancing humidity is like balancing a low-carb diet. Too much or too little sugar is bad. But it is possible to find that perfect spot. When a home has excess moisture, the air can become stuffy and feels warmer than actual temperatures. Microbes, mildew, fungi, bacteria, and viruses love this environment. When there’s too little 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 ideal 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%. You will have an easier time achieving this range with a steam humidifier and a dehumidifier. Whole-home central humidifiers keep humidity within 1% of your desired levels throughout your home, creating a healthier living area, lessening dry sinuses, itchy skin and sore throats, and keeping wood from cracking or warping. It can also reduce the occurrences of bacteria, viruses and respiratory infections. Whole-home central dehumidifiers remove extra moisture, reduce dust mites and mold, and also shield wood from damage. Plus, they are much easier to use and less intrusive than bulky one-room products. It doesn’t matter what the forecast is for West Palm Beach, humidity will continually be a factor in your home.
