Use your Air Conditioner

If you are experiencing humidity in your home, having your air conditioning unit on can help with managing the humidity.

Use your Exhaust or Ventilation Fan

To avoid humidity in your home, while you are cooking or showering, use your ventilation or exhaust fan. This helps remove that hot steam from adding more humidity to your home. We also recommend that once you are done cooking or showering that you keep your ventilation or exhaust fans on for a while longer since steam can still linger. The great team at Morrison Plumbing can help you find a great exhaust or ventilation fan for your kitchen or bathroom that can help keep manage your home’s humidity.
