Maintaining comfort in a house requires controlling its indoor temperature. There’s more to it than that, however. Humidity plays an enormous role in personal comfort in cold and hot weather. The route toward achieving and maintaining balanced humidity in a home is to work with a trusted Cherry Hill HVAC contractor like Climate Mechanics LLC to install the best humidifier or dehumidifier possible.
Imbalanced humidity can make a house stuffy or unpleasantly dry. There are other unfortunate consequences as well, such as health problems and damage to furnishings and building materials.

The Trouble with Air That’s Too Humid or Too Dry
Humidity is the amount of moisture in the air, listed as a percentage. If the relative humidity drops below 30%, that’s too dry. If it rises above 60%, that’s too humid. When looking for the best dehumidifier or humidifier system, our team will aim to have your house at around 45%.
Here’s why the extremes are no fun:
- Too Humid: A humid day makes heat feel worse! The reason is the moisture in the air slows release of heat from the body, trapping more heat. High humidity also allows for the growth of mold and mildew, leading to illnesses.
- Too Dry: Dry conditions mean colder weather has an extra bite to it—heat escapes from the body too fast. Dry conditions also make it easier for colds and flus to spread among people. It can also cause paint and wood to peel and crack.
The Whole-House Dehumidifier and Humidifier
You can find basic portable humidifiers and dehumidifiers in stores, but these can only manage one room at a time and are difficult to control with precision.
The best humidifier or dehumidifier for handling a household’s comfort is a whole-house one. These systems are placed into the ductwork and are controlled through a device called a humidistat.
You will need a professional to pick out the right type of unit or units (you may not require both systems) and have them correctly installed in the ventilation system. Our experts will fix up your home with the humidity control you need for all around the year.
