When you live in Fayetteville, North Carolina, you know just how humid the air can feel at times. Are you looking to escape the oppressive moisture in the air? Here are a few signs that your home could benefit from a dehumidifier:
You Have Constant Allergy Attacks
Unfortunately, some of the most common allergens thrive in moist environments. As a result, they can easily exacerbate your allergy symptoms and mak it hard to get through the day. If you’re noticing an uptick in symptoms, the humidity may be to blame. The excess moisture allows dust mites and other debris to flourish. Even worse, if you have asthma, you might notice you’re having more frequent attacks in your home.
Your Windows Have Condensation
Generally, your windows shouldn’t fog up on a hot summer day. If this is the case, it’s a sign that your home has too much moisture. Since the water in the air has nowhere to go, it collects on the glass. If you leave this unchecked, your home will feel like a steam room. You might also start to see rotting on wooden window frames.
You See Water Damage
Rotting wood isn’t the only type of damage humid air can cause. If the problem is severe enough, it can also create water stains on your ceiling and floor. These stains are unsightly and can only be repaired by replacing the affected area with new materials. Over time, they can even threaten the structural integrity of your home.
If your home is showing signs of excessive moisture, don’t wait around for the problem to get worse. Be proactive about the health of your family and your home by contacting Bass Air Conditioning.
