5 WAYS TO LOWER YOUR HOME HUMIDITY

  1. Temporarily place houseplants outside or concentrate them in one room.

  2. Plants release moisture vapor into the air. Especially when you have lots of plants, their role in home humidity levels can be significant. Also, make sure not to overwater them.

  3. Insulate crawl spaces with a plastic vapor barrier.

  4. Ensure that exhaust fans in kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms vent to the outside. Installing vents and attic fans can help too.

  5. Make sure to clean air-conditioning drain lines and drip pans and keep them unobstructed.
