Benefits of Installing a Whole-Home DehumidifierJuly 27, 2018
Most people in the Midwest cannot wait for the summer season! Weekends at the cabin, festivals, and backyard barbeques are some of the many enjoyable ways to be active in warm weather. By July, temperatures can reach up to the 90s, and with the humidity and heat index, sometimes 100 degrees. Cooling off in the pool or lake may feel pleasant, but you can feel comfortable in your own home, too. Whole-home dehumidifiers work with your heating and cooling equipment to decrease humidity and increase comfortability. Consider the other benefits as well.
Installing a dehumidifier helps prevent mold. Mold grows in moist environments such as your bathroom, basement, and kitchen. Most common allergy triggers like mold, mildew, and dust mites thrive in humid spaces. Poor circulation and old plumbing create the perfect conditions for these triggers. Mold significantly contributes to the development of childhood asthma, too. If your home smells of must, feels damp, or has had mold in the past, you should install a whole-home dehumidifier.
Protect your floors, walls, and furniture with a dehumidifier. Dry winters and humid summers cause wood, paint, and other materials to expand, contract, and eventually warp and crack. Mold can grow in your walls or rust metal fittings as well. Dehumidifiers are beneficial for people who want to keep their home in good condition over time.
Save on energy bills by installing a dehumidifier. Whole-home dehumidifiers attach to your heating and cooling equipment, so you can avoid running electricity with a secondary unit in your home. Cool down your home naturally by taking the moisture out of the air. Not only will you feel more comfortable, but you can turn your thermostat up and save energy.
Consider a whole-home dehumidifier for comfort and home maintenance. We highly recommend these dehumidifiers if you have had mold in the past, condensation on your walls, or have a family member with a respiratory illness.
