During the summer, we can often find that even though we are in our house, and the A/C is going, that still does not feel quite right. Be it heat permeating the walls or roof, excess U/V rays slipping their way through your windows, or other unforeseeable occurrences, but the feel of your residence is still humid. Now, it may seem like there is nothing you can do to stop this from happening, nothing could be farther from the truth; Buehler Air Conditioning & Plumbing has found a couple of useful tips to help correct this irritating inconvenience, and some natural ways to lower humidity in your home.

4 Tips to Help

Shorten Your Showers

Now, we all understand the feeling of taking a nice warm or even hot shower at the end of a long day; it feels like you want to stay in there for as long as you can. That said, this may be a mistake, and it may be adding to your houses’ humidity level. These long showers will add to the moisture build-up in your bathroom, and the adjacent rooms.

Cover Your House Plant’s Soil

Houseplants are a great way of improving the air quality of your home, but it can also lead to unnecessary household humidity. Use a layer of rocks to help keep the moisture in the soil. This will stop the moisture from leaving the soil and entering your home’s air.


Proper home ventilation will allow for a stream of new air to pass through your house, leading to the internal atmosphere of the house being moved around. Flat, stale air leads to more humidity. You may want to consider adding a fan that ducts to the outdoors in your kitchen and bathroom, or you can open the window when taking showers.

Bowls of Kitty Litter or Calcium Chloride

Placing bowls of kitty litter or calcium chloride around your home can help to draw the moisture out of your home’s air and absorb it. If you decide to employ this method that you replace it every couple of weeks.
