The Midwestern U.S. experiences humidity issues regardless of the season. During the hot, muggy summers there will be too much moisture in the air while the winter months bring too dry air. Whichever extreme, it’s important for your health and the efficiency of your comfort system that the moisture is being managed inside your home.
Humidity also impacts your home’s indoor air quality (IAQ). During the dry winter season, the lack of moisture in your home can cause excessive static and cause skin and sinus irritations. It can also cause wood and other materials in your home to dry out, leading to cracking and breaking. In the wet summer season, high humidity can cause those materials to swell and warp. Humid conditions can also cause mold or mildew to grow as well as provide prime breeding ground for bacterias and germs that cause airborne illnesses.
