Why You Should Dehumidify Your Home

High humidity is not something you’re forced to cope with, at least not indoors.  In fact, you have more ways than ever to reduce indoor humidity, and plenty of reasons why you should.

Let’s start with the latter:

  • blogHigh humidity is a breeding ground for all sorts of microscopic organisms that can be harmful to your health, including mildew and mold spores.
  • Dust mites are also big fans of high humidity and can cause or aggravate serious problems with allergies and asthma.
  • High humidity makes you feel warmer and less comfortable, and that can lead to irritability, sleep deprivation, ill temper, and just plain lousy days and nights.
  • High humidity is also no friend to your house. Its structural integrity can be compromised, for example, once humidity has infiltrated its pores.
  • Over time, floorboards and woodwork can creak and bend from too much humidity.
  • The same goes for your wooden instruments, picture frames, doors, and much more.

If you have a newer central air conditioner, chances are you have few if any areas of your home where high humidity is a problem.  If you do, a room dehumidifier is probably more than adequate to the task.

On the other hand, the older an AC system gets, the less able it is to expel unwanted and unhealthy levels of humidity. Is that what’s going on inside your home?  If so, you’re a prime candidate for a whole-house dehumidifier, one we can expertly install to work in conjunction with your central air system to help you:

  • Enjoy greater comfort
  • Set relative humidity levels exactly where you like them to be
  • Eliminate or significantly common causes of allergy and asthma
  • Reduce your energy costs
  • Sleep better at night
