What Is a Whole-Home Dehumidifier?
A dehumidifier is a device that works to remove moisture from the air by drawing hot air over cold coils. In doing this, it forces the humidity to condense, dropping the water into a basin or floor drain. Portable adaptations need to be emptied by hand, while most whole-home versions already come with a built-in drain, pipe, or hose. For more information, check out our blog page here.
When To Use a Dehumidifier
Typically, most people don’t use a dehumidifier year-round. They are most commonly used during hot months or periods of time with warm, rainy weather. However, if your house is reaching humidity levels of over 50%, we strongly recommend that you look into installing a dehumidifier. If you are curious about your home's moisture levels, one of our technicians can run reading to determine its percentages.
Signs it’s time to invest in a dehumidifier:
- Walls, ceilings, or other surfaces contain mold and mildew
- A musty smell in the home
- Condensation on the interior side of windows
- Warping wood floors or furniture
- Rotting wood
- Water stains on ceilings and walls
- ‘Stuffy’ or ‘clammy’ rooms
- Increase in allergy symptoms
Health Concerns Caused by High Moisture Levels
A home that contains high levels of humidity can cause health problems such as, but not limited to:
- Respiratory infections
- The proliferation of allergens
- The growth of microbes, dust mites, fungi, and mildew
- Warped flooring, window frames, and furniture and damage to other building materials
