Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers in Staten Island, NY

High humidity usually means one thing to people: stuffy and uncomfortably hot summer days. It’s true that higher humidity lowers comfort during hot weather, but it creates other troubles when it happens inside a house. And the opposite condition, extreme low humidity, has its own set of negative consequences for a home and the people inside it.

Balancing humidity in a house often requires using a humidifier, dehumidifier, or both. Portable models aren’t recommended: for the best dehumidifier or humidifier for your home, contact Scaran. We install whole-house humidity control systems to help homes enjoy improved comfort as well as better health and a reduction in damage to construction material and personal belongings.

The Importance of Balanced Humidity

Relative humidity should be balanced between 30% and 60%, with 45% as the optimum for comfort in most situations. If humidity levels rise above 60%, it leads to more heat trapped in the human body, and this can make hot days seem almost unbearable. High humidity also encourages mold and mildew growth in a home and can lead to water damage.

When humidity drops below 30%, the opposite comfort problem occurs: heat escapes from the body so fast that it makes colder temperatures feels substantially worse. Dry conditions cause health problems and allow illnesses to spread faster around a house, and can cause wood and paint to peel and crack.

How to Find the Best Humidifier or Dehumidifier
