When your home feels too hot for comfort, the cause may not be the summer heat or a problem with your AC. In many cases, the biggest issue during the summer months is indoor humidity. When the air inside your home is very humid, it makes you uncomfortably warm and sticky.
Conversely, a low humidity reading during the winter months can lead to dehydration, cracked wood, and colder indoor temperatures than expected because your home lacks moisture. Both situations can increase your energy consumption and your utility bills, which is why controlling the humidity level in your home during these instances is a must.
