Is My Plumbing Making My Home Humid

A common problem homeowners experience is high levels of humidity in their space. These high levels of humidity tend to be most concentrated in bathrooms, laundry rooms, and in some cases kitchens. There are many different reasons for trapped humidity in your home, if you have had your air conditioning system inspected but there is not an issue with your HVAC, then the source of your problem may be from your plumbing system. If you notice that you have too much humidity in your home, contact the plumbers at Spindletop Plumbing in Nederland, TX. Our team of expert plumbing professionals are here to help ensure your plumbing is functioning at maximum efficiency for as long as possible.

 

What are sweating pipes?

Have you ever seen condensation on your plumbing? It may appear that moisture is leaking out of the surface of your pipe, much like the condensation that appears on a glass when you pour a drink into it. Sweating pipes are present whenever the water inside of your pipes is at a lower temperature than the humid air surrounding the exterior of the pipe. In a climate as warm and humid as the one in Southeast Texas, this problem is not uncommon.

 

While it may appear that your pipes are sweating, the moisture is actually just condensing from the outside humidity. You may notice the moisture beading on your pipes, which can become excessive and may even drip water onto your floor or other areas of your space.

 

If the moisture in your home is minimal, you may not think this is a problem worth correcting, however, it should be addressed. Whenever you have a build up of moisture, even if it is minimal, it can lead to conditions that cause mold and mildew growth. Not to mention, water damage can destroy your floors, paint, and other belongings.

 

How do I know if I have sweating water pipes?

If you notice an excess of moisture in your home, but do not have a malfunctioning HVAC system this can be a sign that you have a humidity problem coming from your plumbing. You will need direct access to your pipes in order to identify this issue. The most common pipes that are affected by humidity are the ones in the warmest areas of your home. It may be too difficult to tell if you have sweating pipes without the help of a professional plumber. Contact Spindletop Plumbing if you believe there may be an issue with the plumbing in your home.
