Humidity during the warmer months can be a real drag. In fact, it’s almost inevitable, especially in the Baltimore-D.C. Metro area. As a result, moisture is bound to get in your home. But, there is no need to panic. There are plenty of natural ways to reduce your home’s humidity. Here are some helpful tips to reduce the humidity in your home and make sure that it feels comfortable and cool during those hot summer nights.
Ventilate. Ventilate. Ventilate. This can’t be said enough. Ventilation will increase air flow throughout your home and help to reduce all that built up humidity.
Check for Any Potential Leaks
This is especially crucial when you have a history of leaky pipes. In fact, if you find a leaky pipe, you’ll want to get that fixed as soon as possible Otherwise, all the excess moisture from that leak is going to cause humidity within your humble abode. This can include condensation from hot or cold water pipes or other more serious issues like mold and mildew. Therefore, even if you need a quick fix, consider getting a few pool noodles, slicing them down the long side and fitting them over the pipes. You can curve them and cut and piece them to fit. This temporary fix will do until a professional takes a look at the issue.
Air Conditioning Settings
Ideally, you’ll want to have your air conditioner set to a ‘dry’ setting to remove all the excess moisture in your home. In fact, avoid setting it to a cool setting which could actually cause an increase of moisture that could bring mold and mildew into your home.
Bust Out the Fans
Fans are a wonderful tool to help move the air throughout your home. In fact, fans serve as a way to help with evaporation- reducing the moisture throughout the home.
