When it comes to home dehumidification, a lot of homeowners tend to think it’s reserved for the winter months.
Although portable dehumidifiers are able to improve indoor air quality during the winter months, whole home dehumidifiers achieve much more all year round. Summer is here and we’re already well into those hot and muggy days. When the humidity inside your home is not regulated properly, it can be just as hot and muggy indoors as it outdoors.
Your daily activities can increase the amount of moisture in your home by 25%. That’s a pretty high percentage when you consider the moisture in your home that’s present from the outdoor humidity. Here are some more details on whole home dehumidification to help you understand why it’s so important.
The consequences of excess moisture in the home
Excess humidity and moisture inside your home can lead to many unpleasant and unwanted factors in your home such as:
- Increased condensation on your windows and mirrors.
- Musty odours.
- Rotting or warping of wood floors and furniture.
- Mould, and mildew.
- Insect breeding.
Improper home dehumidification can also be problematic for those who suffer from allergies or asthma as the increased moisture can allow dust mites to thrive.
The benefits of using a whole home dehumidifier
Whole home dehumidifiers work in conjunction with your entire home comfort system or on their own as needed.
They are installed and professionally integrated with your home’s heating and cooling system.
Whole home dehumidifiers automatically sense the humidity levels in your home and regulate the moisture levels accordingly. Pollutants in the air are removed or diluted as a result of the fresh air ventilation. Best of all, a whole home dehumidifier is a convenient, quiet and low maintenance device that requires a simple filter cleaning on an annual basis. Ultimately, this becomes an excellent solution for you and your family to do what you love indoors and stay comfortable.
Humidity and moisture in your home may not always be noticeable. That’s why it’s helpful to have the right support in your home to help you and your family feel comfortable and healthy all year round.
