As the seasons come and go in Ballwin, we have days where the humidity feels absolutely miserable. While you may consider lowering your thermostat is the solution, it might be time to consider a dehumidifier. The ideal humidity for your health and comfort is between 30-50%.

There are a few indicators to look for:

  • Musty odors
