At Martin Home Watch, we use technology to monitor the temperature and humidity levels in your home while you're away. We include a printout of the history since our last visit in our written reports. One more reason why you should consider having us "keep watch while you're away."
One of the best ways to remotely monitor and control HVAC settings is with the NEST Thermostat. As you can see from the photo, temperature is set to 65 degrees. The current indoor temperature is 69 degrees with an inside humidity is at 50% and an outside temperature at 54 degrees.
To control indoor humidity with the NEST Thermostat, turn on the air conditioner and lower the temperature until the indoor humidity level you desire is reached. In Florida, an indoor humidity level of between 45% and 55% according to the University of Central Florida. Anything above 55% is consider to be high.
Monitoring and controlling Indoor humidity is one of the most important aspects of our home watch service. When you are away from your Florida property indoor humidity can soar if not controlled and do thousands of dollars in damage. Mold, mildew and dust mites love hot indoor temperatures.
