Salisbury, Maryland may be known as the “Comfortable Side of Coastal,” but it isn’t very comfortable when you have high humidity levels in your home. For summertime comfort, humidity levels should stay below 50 percent. If humidity levels climb higher than that, it makes the air feel sticky and could have a negative impact on your sleep. Luckily, there are ways to control humidity in the home.

Clean Your Dryer Vents

With winter’s heating needs out of the way, turn off the humidifier first. Skip the dryer and hang wet laundry outside, or at a minimum, make sure the dryer vent is clean and directed outside.

Delay Running Appliances Until the Evening

Avoid running things that add more heat and humidity to your home’s interior during the hottest part of the day. Wait until it cools off at night to run the dishwasher. Also, try cooking outdoors on the grill during the day so you don’t heat up the house by running the oven.

Turn On Fans

Turn on exhaust fans, and run the air conditioner so it can pull excess humidity out of the air. Run your AC a few degrees warmer with a ceiling fan blowing to help circulate the air. Set up portable fans to circulate the air in highly humid parts of your home, and be sure to run the fan when showering.

Service Your Unit

Have your air conditioning unit serviced to make sure it’s operating at peak efficiency and to ensure that water isn’t pooling inside of it. Also, have leaky pipes fixed and use gutters and downspouts to route rainwater away from your home’s foundation so water doesn’t seep back inside.

Maintaining proper humidity levels in your home is important for preserving your family’s comfort levels and your belongings.
