Use Humidifiers & Dehumidifiers to Improve Indoor Air Quality Admit it. We tend to fixate on what the meteorologist tells us will happen here in Fort Lauderdale. The forecast controls our schedules, and can even affect our emotions. And what we may not realize is that weather patterns impact everything inside our homes, from furniture to health. Of course, we mean the impact humidity can have when it isn’t monitored. Balancing humidity is like balancing a low-carb diet. Too much or too little could be harmful. But it is possible to find that perfect spot. With too much moisture in the house, the air gets stuffy and feels warmer than actual temperatures. Microbes, mildew, fungi, bacteria, and viruses thrive on this environment. When there’s too little moisture, skin gets dry, throats get sore, and wooden furniture, flooring and walls—and even instruments—can warp. Humidity levels between 35% and 50% are ideal for comfort. But if you want an environment that’s free from microbes and that won’t damage wood, the humidity levels should be maintained between 45% and 50%. A steam humidifier and a dehumidifier are the answer. Whole-home central humidifiers control humidity within 1% of the recommended levels throughout your home, creating a healthier house, lessening dry sinuses, itchy skin and sore throats, and keeping wood from cracking or warping. It can also reduce the occurrences of bacteria, viruses and respiratory infections. Whole-home central dehumidifiers remove extra moisture, lessen dust mites and mold, and also shield wood from damage. Plus, they are much easier to use and less intrusive than bulky one-room products. It doesn’t matter what the forecast is for Fort Lauderdale, humidity will continually be a factor in your home.
