The most effective way to reduce humidity in your home would be to use a dehumidifier, yet if you do not own one or the humidity issue inside your home isn’t major, there are a few tips and tricks that you are able to use to dehumidify your home.
- Air Conditioning: Turning on your AC not only cools down the room, it also reduced the humidity inside, especially during extreme humid weather.
- Ventilate your home: Keep your home properly ventilated, most importantly in areas such as the bathroom and kitchen that create the most amount of moisture. Keep your vents or fans on for longer periods of time to ensure you have enough ventilation in your home.
- Clean your furnace and AC filters: When the furnace or AC filters are clogged, this will eventually slow down the air flow and cause the humidity in your own home to worsen.
- Use your kitchen exhaust fans: Oven and stove-top cooking can produce large amounts of moisture throughout the air. When cooking meals, try your best to trap the heat by covering the food and turning on the exhaust fans.
- Fix your walls: Walls that have any cracks/holes can bring moisture throughout the room. The warm, moist outside air travels through the cracks and goes inside your home. Check your home’s external walls to make sure that there are no cracks and make sure to fix them properly.
These are just a few tricks to help you keep the humidity out of your home during the hot summer months. If you are in need of any assistance from Nebrasky, call us at 800.989.0299 and set up an appointment today!
