Tips for Controlling Summer Humidity

The only thing worse than a hot and humid summer day is not being able to find refuge in your home. If your house has unusually high levels of moisture, getting comfortable might be impossible! Follow these tips for controlling summer humidity:
  • Purchase a dehumidifier
  • Turn on exhaust fans while cooking and showering
  • Cook with covered pots to reduce the amount of moisture being introduced into your house
  • Take cooler, shorter showers
  • Make sure your clothes dryer vents directly outdoors
  • Put all houseplants outside
Remember, humidity levels in your home should never exceed 50 percent. If you notice any of the following indicators, you should take action:
  • Window fog and condensation
  • Excess moisture on walls and ceilings
  • Development of mold
