Winter is almost here, and in California, that means one thing, moisture because when it is cold outside, most people will turn their heaters on during the day or night.
If you’re the type of person who likes to crank up the heater when it hits 55 degrees outside, this could lead to more moisture inside your home.
Thankfully, minimizing moisture in your home this winter if you follow these tips.
Tip #1 – Use A Dehumidifier
Investing in a dehumidifier is by far one of the easiest things that you can do to minimize the amount of moisture in your home this winter.
With a dehumidifier, all you have to do is leave it running during the day or night, and it will pull moisture from the air.
Tip #2 – Reverse Your Ceiling Fans
The next thing that you should do to minimize moisture in your home this winter is to reverse your ceiling fans.
This tip is effective because reversing ceiling fans will pull the air up to the ceiling and help the warm air distribute evenly throughout the room where the ceiling fan is located.
Tip #3 – Don’t Leave Your Curtains Closed All Day
One of the biggest mistakes that people make when the weather starts getting colder is leaving their curtains or blinds closed all day.
If you leave your curtains closed all day, you’re going to find out the hard way that mold is going to start appearing on those curtains, and behind those curtains as well.
Tip #4 – Get Your HVAC Tuned Up
Last of all, but most important, another essential thing that you should do before the start of winter is to get your HVAC tuned up.
An HVAC tune-up will ensure that your central heating works properly during the winter months and this will also help you to have a lower energy bill as well.
