In Smoky Mountain towns like Bryson City, heating systems must compete with the appeal of the great outdoors. People come here to enjoy the beauty of the mountains, which can sit at odds with the needs of heating in the winter. You may notice that your home grows stuffy and stifling in the wintertime when you’re trying to keep warm. A stuffy house is an uncomfortable house, but you can address it both casually and permanently if it becomes a problem. Here are a few possible reasons why your home is stuffy.
- Poor ventilation. A lack of ventilation keeps moisture and other undesirable elements trapped inside instead of escaping like it should. Poor ventilation also means poor circulation, making air stale and irritating to the throat. You can address the issue by improving the flow of air within your home: expanding on the ducts or upgrading your heating system to address the ventilation issue.
- Excessive humidity. A good heater can help matters by dehumidifying the house, removing excess moisture and helping the air feel fresher. (Take care not to dehumidify too much, however: an excessively dry home can be as uncomfortable as an excessively wet one.)
