Humidity is the presence of airborne moisture and while that might not sound impactful, you sure do feel the difference that it makes in the middle of summer. High humidity levels are tied to worse discomfort because the humidity is GREAT at holding heat–the opposite of what you want when the thermometer is already temperatures over 80°.
So what do you do when it is both hot and humid in your home? It’s not like you can wipe the moisture out of the air with a rag! Thankfully, you don’t have to. If you haven’t considered one before, you might want to pause for a moment and think over the benefits of adding a whole-house dehumidifier to your home this summer.
