Look at the ways high humidity can have a negative impact on your health:

 

Humidity can lead to mold growth.

Wherever moisture comes into contact with building materials inside your home, you run the risk of developing mold. It’s essential that leaks are identified, sealed and any affected areas are completely dried or removed right away. Once mold starts, it’s easily spread with the release of spores. These tiny particles can irritate your lungs, aggravating breathing problems or creating them.

 

High humidity causes discomfort.

Anyone who’s walked outside as of late knows that high humidity can make temperatures seem even hotter. This isn’t just an illusion. The more water that is in the air, the less sweat gets wicked away from your body and your temperature can’t be lowered naturally. Indoors this can mean irritability, crankiness, headaches and even sleepless nights. It also means that by lowering indoor humidity, your air conditioner has an easier job of cooling your house. Thankfully there are a number of HVAC remedies for humidity levels in your home.
