What causes discomfort in a home?

High humidity can cause us to feel either hot and sticky, or cold and clammy, and also contributes to smelly odors in the home. When we lower the temperature of our air conditioning to combat that “sticky” feeling, the results are “cold and clammy.”

Comfort

Our home is our sanctuary. It is where we spend time with family and friends. People in the US spend an average of 65% of their time at home and as much as 90% of their time indoors. Addressing comfort in the home is very important to our family’s quality of life. High humidity can cause us to feel either hot and sticky, or cold and clammy, and also contributes to smelly odors in the home. When we lower the temperature of our air conditioning to combat that “sticky” feeling, the results are “cold and clammy.”

Most of us think high humidity occurs only during the summer months, but, in fact, the most important times of the year to address humidity issues are actually in the spring and fall when temperatures are moderate (air conditioning is not needed) and outdoor humidity levels are high. Ultra-Aire Whole House Ventilating Dehumidifiers address all of these uncomfortable situations effectively and efficiently and will make your home comfortable year round.

About Dehumidification and Your Comfort

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, for maximum comfort, indoor relative humidity (RH) should be maintained between 35% and 50%.

Indoor humidity cannot be effectively or efficiently controlled with an air conditioner/cooling system alone. Air conditioners are designed to cool a home based on a temperature set point; dehumidifiers focus solely on removing humidity.

Using an Ultra-Aire Whole House Ventilating Dehumidifier will allow you to precisely control the indoor humidity levels of your entire house and greatly increase the comfort levels of your home.
