When it comes to home humidity levels, it can be a balancing act to keep your home at the optimum setting. One of the questions posed on the show was if a home’s humidity levels were too high, whether or not it made sense to utilize a dehumidifier or air exchanger. To answer this question, it’s important to notate the difference between the two. A dehumidifier is designed to combat a home’s level of high humidity. On the other hand, an air exchanger is designed to replace the home’s air. Therefore, an air exchanger in itself will simply replace a home’s moist air with more moist air. Premium systems can be purchased that have dehumidification capabilities, but can be cost prohibitive and more intrusive to install. In the winter months, optimum humidity within a home ranges between 20%-30%. Purchasing a humidistat can allow a homeowner to track humidity levels within their home. Too high of humidity levels can result in frosty attics which can cause thousands of dollars in damage to a home.
