You may not hear a whole lot about humidifiers in Acworth, GA, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that they aren’t needed in some homes! What you are more likely to hear about, are dehumidifiers in Acworth, GA. This is because of their functionality and the climate we tend to have in our area, almost year-round.

We’re going to dive into this more below, explaining the difference between a humidifier and a dehumidifier, and how to know if you need either one. The gist is, that the ideal relative humidity level in any given home is between 30-50%. Anything lower than 30% is considered too dry, and any over 50% is considered too humid.
