Earlier this week we talked about bacteria and how St. Louis area homeowners can control them in their home’s air. Today we’re going to turn to another common problem when it comes to indoor air quality: high humidity. So what’s the link between indoor air quality and humidity and what can you to prevent problems in your home?

How does high humidity affect indoor air quality?

Homes that have high humidity are at risk for poor indoor air quality because of all the indoor contaminants that thrive in moist areas: dust mites, fungi and bacteria. These contaminants can also grow on your HVAC system, which might lead it to distribute contaminated air throughout your home.

Some common symptoms of people whose indoor air quality has been affected by high humidity are sneezing, stuffiness, runny noses and itchy red eyes. The contaminants associated with high humidity can also cause allergic reactions in certain people and can bring on asthma attacks for people who suffer from asthma.

How to control humidity for better indoor air quality

If you have any questions about indoor air quality and humidity, or if you’d like an HVAC system serviced or installed in your home, contact Jerry Kelly, your St. Louis area heating and cooling company.

They weren't able to service my daughter's unit but Emily was the absolute greatest in guiding us to someone who could help. Emily earns all five stars in customer service!

Jerry A. Was very nice and explained everything to me and my wife. He let us know what things would cost. He wore his mask and work shoe covers when inside. He made a uneasy situation enjoyable.
