I don’t know about you but I’ve about had it with this rain in Central Pa. The hill behind my house which backs onto Pine Grove Mountain looks and sounds like a perpetual waterfall and my backyard is a swampy mess. Normally by this time of the year, we’ve gone through the August drought and my lawnmower would have had a breather.

What most people don’t realize is that this kind of relentless rain can have a major effect on the humidity in your home and also cause your air conditioning to work overtime. While mold can be the biggest problem associated with excessive humidity, there are many other health (asthma, allergies, respiratory disease) and home (warped hardwood floors, damage to pianos and other instruments, moisture on windows) issues that can result from high or low humidity in your house.
I’ve attached a really informative article that explains the issues associated with too much and too little humidity in both heating and cooling seasons. Take a read.
