The right humidity level for a home is a balance between extremes. Relative humidity between 30% and 50% is ideal for maintaining comfort and good health. But during the year in Iowa it’s far too easy for indoor humidity to swing one direction or the other, with high humidity in the summer and low humidity during the winter. To maintain humidity balance in a home often requires the installation of a whole-house humidifier and/or dehumidifier.
Finding the best dehumidifier or best humidifier to serve you is something that requires working with indoor air quality experts. You’ll eventually need them to do the actual installation—whole house humidifiers and dehumidifiers aren’t DIY projects—so have them working with you from the start. And the place to start is Baxter Comfort Solutions. We have years of history with HVAC services in Baxter, IA and in the “golden circle” between Ames, Des Moines, Newton, and Marshalltown.
