Tips For Managing Moisture During The Winter


Winter is almost here in Frederick County and with the start of winter, there will also be snow, ice, and cold temperatures.

Besides the change in weather, one common thing that every homeowner and renter across the Frederick County area has to deal with is moisture.

In this article, we will provide you with several tips that you can use for dealing with moisture during the winter, as efficiently as possible.

#1 – Buy A Dehumidifier To Stop Moisture

One of the most effective things that you can do to eliminate moisture in your home during the winter is to buy a dehumidifier.

Thankfully, dehumidifiers are affordable and can fit with any budget.

Once you purchase a dehumidifier, all you have to do is place it in a central location in your home and it will pull a majority of the moisture from the air.

You may have to empty the dehumidifier periodically but, the good news that having a dehumidifier in your home will be effective at eliminating a majority of the moisture and conditions that breed mold.

#2 – Reverse Your Ceiling Fan Blades

Another important thing that you can do to eliminate the moisture in your home is to reverse your ceiling fan blades.

Reversing the ceiling fan motor, so that your ceiling fan blades move in a clockwise direction will produce a gentle updraft which will force the warm air that’s near the ceiling down into the room.

#3 – Get Your HVAC Tuned Up

Last of all, the most important, thing that you can do to limit the amount of moisture in your home this winter is to get your HVAC tuned up before the start of winter.

Doing this will help to ensure that your HVAC runs efficiently and will help your home to stay at the maximum comfort level during the winter months
