Why Does My Home Feel Humid?

August 15, 2023 | Blog

Humidity might just be one of the most uncomfortable feelings that a person can feel — especially in the hot state of Texas. With this comes the stickiness of the skin, the never-ending sweating, the unbearable heat and the feeling of dehydration.

You might retreat to your home to cool off, only to find that humidity has also claimed that space as well. You might just ask yourself, “Why does my home feel so humid?” Blanco AC, Electrical & Plumbing has the answers that Blanco residents have been looking for.

Blanco Indoor Air Quality

The reason a home can get humid is due to the excess moisture in the air. High levels of humidity can occur for several reasons, both inside and outside your home.

External humidity levels can greatly influence the levels of internal humidity. The summers in Blanco are hot and muggy. This heavy air can seep into your home and make it feel sticky and uncomfortable.

What Causes Poor Indoor Air Quality?

Inadequate ventilation can trap moisture indoors, making your home feel humid. Everyday activities like cooking, bathing, and even breathing release moisture into the air.

Without proper ventilation, this moisture accumulates, leading to increased indoor humidity. Other issues like the lack of proper insulation or poorly sealed doors and windows can lead to condensation forming on surfaces, which also decreases your indoor air quality (IAQ).

Now that the reasons have been identified, Blanco AC, Electric & Plumbing has a few ways that homeowners in Blanco can keep their homes cool and dehumidified.

Eliminate Indoor Humidity

Dehumidifiers are designed to extract excess moisture from the air, effectively lowering humidity levels in your home. Place them in areas where humidity tends to be higher, such as kitchens or bathrooms.

A humidifier is designed to do the opposite. A humidifier works by speeding up the process of natural evaporation.

These machines use a fan to blow air through a damp filter, which causes the water to evaporate into water vapor. That water vapor is then delivered into the room to increase the humidity level.

Depending on the time of year and your home’s humidity level, you may need to invest in indoor air quality solutions from our team. Let us banish that muggy air and help you breathe easier indoors!

Turn To Blanco AC, Electrical & Plumbing For IAQ Solutions

To improve your IAQ, make sure your home has adequate ventilation in addition to utilizing a humidifier or dehumidifier when necessary. Use exhaust fans in the kitchen and bathroom to push humid air outside. You can also open windows and doors when it’s not humid outside to allow fresh air to circulate through the house.

When you apply these methods of combating humidity and preventing moisture from getting into your home, you’ll be able to spend more time cooling off from the sticky, unbearable outdoors.

If you do suspect that you have air quality problems, Blanco AC, Electric & Plumbing will be happy to help you with all your needs. Call today to schedule a consultation, appointment or inspection to help address your issues and get your home feeling comfortable again.
