Effects on Your Home
For homes that aren’t humid enough, there can be some problems that go beyond the air simply being dry. Without enough moisture in the air, wood floors and furniture can dry out and eventually crack. It can also cause problems in your bathroom and around windows. The caulking in various spots around your home can actually become too dry if the humidity is too low, which can cause it to weaken and lose its effectiveness.
If your home is too humid, there’s a good chance you’ll see some mold growth around the house. Your windows may have a build up of condensation, which can drip down onto the window and eventually rot the wood. For homes with wallpaper, it may peel off when the air is too humid.
Ideally, you should try to keep your home in the range of 40-60% humidity year-round. Contact an HVAC professional at Carolina Comfort for more details on controlling the humidity in your home.
