In past years, we would have numerous humidifiers working all winter time long.
They would both be in the kitchen, as well as it would barely keep the humidity levels above forty percent.
This year, we decided to go from using a humidifier to wishing we had a dehumidifier. The humidity was so high that I could experience the moisture on my face. I asked my husband what was going on, as well as why it was so humid, as well as he said he thought we had a vapor lock. I thought he was totally crazy. I had never heard of a home that got vapor locked, but he said it usually kept the humidity out of the house, but something must have gone wrong. The vapor barrier was used to keep the humidity levels low in the summer, but it shouldn’t be working this way in the winter. My friend and I were now upset there could be mold throughout the home with this happening. I called the HVAC corporation the next day as well as told them about the excess humidity in the house. He quickly came over that afternoon as well as started looking for the problem. He said he could not find anything wrong with the HVAC system, but if it persisted, he would need to look at something else. He then said it was a longshot, although he was wondering if there wasn’t a problem with the HVAC duct. He called the ducttoil cleaners as well as told them we needed to have our duct coil cleaned before he did any further research on the humidity problem.
