How Humidity effects you and your home

Hidden Humidity: How Indoor Air Affects Your Northern Virginia Home & Health

Hidden Humidity: How Indoor Air Affects Your Northern Virginia Home & Health

Northern Virginia weather can be unpredictable, and it’s not just the temperature you need to worry about. Humidity levels inside your home play a surprisingly big role in both comfort and the health of your home itself. At Bowman’s, with over 30 years of serving Loudoun, Fairfax, and Prince William Counties, we’ve seen firsthand the damage that out-of-balance humidity can cause.


Understanding Humidity: The Silent Guardian of Your Comfort and Health
Humidity, the level of moisture in the air, plays a pivotal role in shaping our indoor living environment. Too much or too little can have profound effects not just on our comfort but also on the integrity of our homes and our health.


High Humidity turns our cherished wooden floors and furniture into victims of warping and distortion, fosters the growth of mold and bacteria, and makes our living spaces feel uncomfortably stuffy.


Low Humidity during the colder months extracts moisture from the air, leading to dry skin, respiratory discomfort, and static shocks, while also putting our wooden fixtures at risk of shrinking and cracking.


The Signs and Solutions: When to Act and How

  • Recognizing the need for a humidifier or dehumidifier is key to maintaining optimal comfort.
  • Need for a Humidifier: Indicated by persistent dry air symptoms such as static shocks, dry skin, and respiratory issues. A humidifier reintroduces the necessary moisture, safeguarding both your health and the longevity of your wooden interiors.
  • Need for a Dehumidifier: Evident through constant dampness, condensation on windows, musty odors, or visible mold. A dehumidifier extracts excess moisture, protecting your home’s structure and improving air quality.
