Your home in Pembroke, North Carolina, is your sanctuary. It’s the place where you look forward to getting to at the end of the day. Indoor comfort is essential to peace of mind. To make your home a comfortable space, you’ll want to tackle issues related to high humidity, poor indoor air quality and drafts.
Conquer High Humidity
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends that optimal home humidity levels should be between 30 and 50 percent. Excessive humidity in the home not only makes your living spaces uncomfortable but can also warp wood and cause damage to floors and furniture.
When high humidity becomes a problem in your home, you can take some steps to correct it. Opening windows, turning off heat-generating appliances when you’re not using them, and using a dehumidifier in damp, moisture-prone areas can help keep humidity levels in control.
Improve Poor Indoor Air Quality
Even if you don’t have anyone in your home who suffers from allergies or asthma, don’t compromise the the quality of the air you breathe inside your home. It just isn’t worth the trouble and headache — literally. While keeping your home clean can certainly help freshen the air, it’s not enough.
To improve IAQ, consider installing ventilation and filtration systems. There are a number of high-quality Carrier products that address air quality issues. From whole-home dehumidifiers to air purifiers, there’s plenty of air quality solutions to meet your needs.
Guard Against Drafts
Drafts entering your home from openings around doors and windows can work against your HVAC system’s efforts to maintain comfort in your living spaces. Adding weather stripping, insulation, and caulking around doors and windows can protect your house from summer heat buildup or cold blasts of air during the winter. Insulating your attic is a good place to start. It can be a major source of heat gain in a home.
