How to Combat Humidity in a Home January 17, 2020

Pearl City, Ewa
How to Combat Humidity in a Home, Ewa, Hawaii

Most of Oahu sees a considerable amount of rain every year. While that means residents get to enjoy lush, green landscapes outside, they must contend with high humidity levels inside. Fortunately, with a few simple strategies and help from your HVAC contractor, you can keep moisture at bay. 

3 Tips for Lowering Humidity Levels Inside Your Home 

1. Use Available Ventilation Fans 

HVAC contractorsWhether cooking or showering, turn on the ventilation fan before starting and leave it on for a while after finishing. This will eliminate much of the moisture normally produced during such activities. If you use a dishwasher daily, turn on the exhaust fan in the kitchen when the cycle reaches the steaming stage.   

2. Clean the Gutters

Clogged gutters can cause water to pool. If left unchecked, this water will deteriorate the roof until a leak develops. Inspect your gutters periodically, and clean them when they fill with leaves, twigs, and other debris. You should also extend the downspouts away from your home to keep moisture from creeping in through the foundation. 

3. Turn On the AC

If your home is equipped with an AC, using it around-the-clock will keep the humidity at a tolerable level because it will replace warm, humid air with cooler, dry air. Should the moisture be especially bad, you can make the system more effective by adding a dehumidifying component. Discuss your options with an HVAC contractor after they evaluate your system. 


For the AC in your home to reduce humidity, it has to be in optimal condition. To schedule a tuneup, turn to Air Conditioning Unlimited.
