3 Natural Ways to Control Humidity

Posted on January 7th, 2016 by Jupiter Tequesta

Florida may be one of the most humid states in the U.S. On particularly bad days, it may seem like no matter how hard you try, there’s no escaping the hot and sticky weather! Excess humidity is not only uncomfortable, but can cause an array of other issues, including insomnia, mold growth and rust. The home comfort experts of Jupiter-Tequesta Air Conditioning, Plumbing & Electric are here to help.

Here’s how to control indoor humidity naturally:

1. Ventilate properly

Kitchen, bath and dryer vents should all lead outside. Poorly designed or malfunctioning ventilation systems will cause moisture buildup during everyday tasks such as cooking, showering and laundry.

2. Check for leaks

A constantly dripping faucet is not only a massive waste of water, but will also contribute to indoor humidity problems. You may require the help of a leak detection expert for pipe leaks, whether they’re located behind a wall or in the ceiling.

3. Give indoor plants a blanket

We don’t recommend cloaking the plants themselves (they need sunlight!), but covering exposed soil can help prevent water from evaporating into the air. Plus, you won’t have to water your house plants as often. Talk about a win-win!

Updating your home’s air conditioning system can also help control indoor humidity. Give us a call today and ask about Maytag’s IQ Drive Complete-Comfort System, the only system that not only controls temperature, but also achieves the most consistent levels of humidity, air quality and ventilation.
