Living in the Gulf South brings its own set of challenges, especially when it comes to maintaining a comfortable and damage-free home. The persistent humidity can have a significant impact on every aspect of your dwelling, from the structural integrity to the indoor air quality. Traditional wood windows, while elegant and durable, can be particularly susceptible to this moist environment. At Relief Windows, we understand these challenges and offer solutions tailored to preserving the beauty and functionality of your wood windows despite the humidity.

The Battle Against Humidity in the Gulf South

Humidity is more than a simple discomfort; it’s a pervasive force that can invade your home. It can cause wood to swell, paint to peel, and a plethora of other issues that lead to costly repairs. However, there are some steps you can take to reduce the humidity in your home.

  • Properly sealed windows form the frontline defense against persistent moisture. Ensuring that your wood windows are sealed correctly can make all the difference in protecting your home from the damaging effects of high humidity levels.
  • Using a dehumidifier inside your home is another effective strategy. It helps in maintaining an optimal level of moisture in the air, protecting both the health of the inhabitants and the condition of the wood and other materials within the home.
  • If your home has a crawl space, you may notice increased moisture entering your home from the soil below. Consider placing a vapor barrier over the soil to prevent damp soil from sending more moisture into your home.
  • Additionally, good air circulation is key, especially during warmer months. It’s essential to allow air to move freely throughout the house to avoid condensation and the problems that come with it. Maintaining your A/C and using fans (especially those that circulate externally) can keep air moving. Preventing humid air from staying stagnant can be crucial if you want to reduce moisture and dampness indoors.

Each of these solutions can be helpful in the battle against humidity. But when you want wood windows that offer the highest levels of protection against the elements, it’s time to consider Jeld-Wen wood windows.
