With warmer weather approaching in the coming summer months, the last thing you want to deal with is hot sticky air in your home! Your home should be a place of comfort and escape from the weather. If you’re struggling to dehumidify your home, keep reading to learn some of our simple tips and tricks to make your home more comfortable this season.
What’s better than a cool shower on a sunny day? Hot showers tend to create steam and warm up surrounding rooms. If you prefer taking hot showers, consider opening a window in the bathroom or in a room close by to ventilate the warm air and reduce hot steam from filling up your space.
Dry Laundry Outside:
Laundry day is necessary to have fresh, clean clothes, but it can also cause your house to warm up the same way a hot shower might! Depending on how large your laundry load is, you may want to try hanging freshly washed clothes outside to dry. The hot summer sun will dry clothes in no time, you will have saved some energy, and you’ll be left with a cooler, humid free home!
Before the sun is strongest in the afternoon, let the cool morning air into your home by opening some windows when you first get out of bed. This will bring some fresh air into your home, and it’ll also relieve your home of any humidity from showers, laundry, and cooking. Just remember to close the windows once the day starts to get warmer!
If you live in a humid area or can’t seem to get rid of the humidity in your home with other options, it might be time to invest in a dehumidifier! There are many dehumidifiers on the market within different price ranges for various home sizes. Consult with a professional about what kind of dehumidifier would work best for you and your home.
