Keeping Your Home From Drying Out In New Orleans’s Dry Season
October is upon us, which can only mean one thing: things are going to get dry! October is the driest month of the year for residents of the Crescent City and the surrounding area, but that doesn’t mean your home needs to dry out. Take a look at our guide to keeping your home in New Orleans comfortable and habitable this October.
Invest in a Good Quality Humidifier
One of the most effective ways to add moisture to your home is by investing in a high-quality humidifier like those offered by Bryans United. Humidifiers work by gently raising the humidity level of dry air in a room and come in a range of sizes and capacities.
Strategically Place Bowls of Water Around Your Home
This is an old-school solution, but it’s incredibly effective. Simply pour water into bowls and place them in the rooms that you think are in danger of drying out. As the water evaporates, the vapor will be absorbed into the air, raising the moisture levels. This solution might be a little tricky if you have small children or pets, though, as unsupervised bowls of water have a habit of getting knocked over.
Boil Water on Your Stove
This solution works in a way similar to leaving bowls of water around the house, but it is much quicker, though it does consume more energy. Simply fill a saucepan or cooking pot with water, heat it to the boiling point, remove the lid, and let the water vapor escape into the air.
Dry Your Wet Clothes Inside
To complete two household chores in one fell swoop, hang your wet clothes inside to dry. This allows the residual moisture in your clothes to be evaporated into the air within your home, leaving you with clothes that are nice and dry and a home that is comfortably humid.
