Does your house get humid at all?

I used to live in a tropical country, when it is spring and summer, it gets humid like crazy, for those SUPER humid days, my floors can get wet is soaking wet(I'm not kidding), the walls in the hallway get wet and it could get smelly... the ceiling gets wet so you can see some spot and it pops sometimes... so we most of the time need to turn on the air conditioner otherwise, it could get way worse to do the maintenance... Humiditiy is nice because you can tell the summer is there! But it could bring you trouble like that... I still prefer humid and warm instead of dry and cold though. Does humidity do anything to you or your house?

Hi mermaidivy, the humidity outside is so thick you can feel it this last week or two so we've been inside a lot more than usual. Upstairs, where the living room and kitchen is, the heat is unbearable despite open windows as we have a flat roof which soaks in the heat. Downstairs is more comfortable with a fan on. I haven't noticed any adverse effects on the house from the humidity but do get problems in the winter when it is really damp and cold. We can get mould growing when the weather is too bad to open windows and the cold feeling is impossible to shift, then it can be warmer outside than in.

Yea.. I ahve two floors too, upstair is particularly hot and humid... really cannot stand it... need to turn on the air conditioner before we sleep at least for an hour... otherwise, feel like no air to breath...

i dislike the humidity that comes during our short summer but it doesnt get that bad fortunately. i find that i feel quite sick (dizzy and sick to my stomach) during days of high humidity. fortunately, here in canada, our summers are pretty short (only about 3-4 months.)

It is harder to breather when it is very humid but it is ok, I prefer humid than dry :-)
