If you live in an arid climate, such as most of the southwest, the dry weather can lead to tight skin, chapped lips, headaches, and more.

Fortunately, that’s not a problem that residents of Titusville, FL, and surrounding areas have to worry about. After all, with relative humidity levels reaching 90% or more during much of the year, it’s all we can do not to sweat through our clothes.

Even though high humidity like this comes with a variety of benefits, including healthy skin and nails, reduced sinus irritation, and more, most of us are optimally comfortable somewhere around 40-50% humidity. How can you bring the humidity in your home down to this range? That’s what we’ll discuss next.

2 Tips for Lowering the Humidity in Your Home

  1. Run your HVAC system. As long as your system is properly sized for your home, it will pull air out, where it will meet the evaporator coil. As this portion changes air from hot to cold, much of the moisture is pulled with it. Then, once the air is sent back into your home, it will be less humid.
  2. Use exhaust fans. Exhaust fans can help pull hot air out of key areas, such as kitchens, laundry rooms, and bathrooms. Because hot air is able to hold more moisture, this could help reduce the overall humidity in your home.
