How could tracking and monitoring the relative humidity of your property help you save money throughout the year?
Studies show that an indoor air environment which maintains the optimal levels of relative humidity (RH) helps your HVAC system perform at an optimal rate. When RH levels stay within the appropriate range, it takes the burden off your HVAC system. Since it does not have to work as hard to maintain the optimal indoor air environment, the overall cost to run is less.
In addition, properties that operate in the ideal relative humidity ranges (30-45% in the summer and below 40% in the winter) can seem cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. This can help keep costs down by keeping a consistent temperature during each season.
Skewed indoor humidity levels can lead to chronic air quality issues over time. Mold growth, problems sleeping, itchy skin and rotting wood are only a few examples of what can occur when humidity levels are off.
On-Site Specialty Cleaning & Restoration has helped home and business owners restore their indoor air quality to safe and manageable levels. Our clients have even seen improvements in the efficiency of their HVAC systems – saving money overall on power consumption once RH levels are controlled.
At On-Site Specialty Cleaning & Restoration, we are experienced in delivering proven solutions to assist in keeping your property within ideal humidity ranges. If you feel your indoor humidity control could use a look from a professional, then give us a call.
The summer months are known to be hot and muggy in Michigan. Since warm air can hold up to 10x more moisture than cold air, it is important to prevent high levels of moisture inside your property. Excessive moisture can lead to mold growth, rotting wood, wet insulation and even difficulty sleeping.
Sometimes the simple action to take is to purchase a highly rated dehumidifier. In most cases, this can be plenty to help attack the excessive moisture indoors. However, larger buildings such as commercial office buildings, healthcare facilities, educational institutions and government facilities may require a more comprehensive solution.
At On-Site Specialty Cleaning & Restoration, we have successfully helped many different clients permanently reduce excessive indoor humidity levels to a safe and habitable condition.
In contrast to the typical Michigan summer, winters can be cold and dry. This can lead to issues such as dry, itchy skin or damage to wood floors or wood furniture, and can leave a person more susceptible to colds or unwanted viruses. Low humidity levels can also damage your electronics by causing an increase in static shocks.
In situations of low relative humidity, a humidifier could help replenish the missing moisture in the air. If that is not enough, then it would be helpful to bring in a professional who can properly evaluate your specific situation and devise a plan to consistently keep your indoor humidity levels at an appropriate level.
If you are still experiencing humidity levels outside of the recommended ranges, give On-Site Specialty Cleaning & Restoration a call.
