The Importance of a Dehumidifier System

A dehumidifier system has numerous benefits, including improving air quality, safeguarding your health, saving money, and enhancing the comfort of your space. Clean air is easier to breathe and free from allergens. In environments with high humidity, mold spores thrive and unpleasant odors develop. Breathing in mold spores can be harmful even for healthy individuals. A dehumidifier eliminates excess moisture from the air, making it safer and cleaner.

Excessive moisture not only poses risks to your health but also damages your property. Persistent dampness can lead to rot that compromises wooden structures and the overall integrity of your home or commercial space. It can also cause floors to buckle or sag. By using a dehumidifier, you can protect the interior of your home, as well as electronics, furniture, and textiles.

Another advantage of using a dehumidifier is that it makes your home feel cooler during the summer months. This allows you to set the thermostat a few degrees higher, ultimately helping you save money on energy bills. Additionally, drier air is easier for HVAC units to process, reducing their runtime.

When to Use a Dehumidifier: A Guide for Homeowners

Don't run a dehumidifier year-round in your home. Typically, it's best used during warm, rainy weather and humid summer months.

If any part of your home has a humidity reading over 50%, it's time to consider installing a dehumidifier. Contact Aire Serv® of Hinesville professionals who can assess the air quality in your home by taking humidity and other readings.

Here are some signs that indicate the need for a dehumidifier:

  • Visible mold and mildew growth on walls, ceilings, or surfaces.
  • Persistent musty smell throughout the home or in specific areas.
  • Condensation on the inner side of windows.
  • Warping of wood floors or furniture.
  • Rotting wood on window sills and baseboards.
  • Water stains on ceilings and walls.
  • Insect infestation inside the home.
  • Rooms feeling "stuffy" or "clammy".
  • Increase in allergy symptoms, colds, and illnesses.

Confronting Humidity Woes in Basements and Bathrooms

Basements are notorious for their humidity and dampness. Common causes include leaking groundwater, humid air, improper ventilation of appliances, and inadequate insulation. To prevent the growth of mold, mildew, pests, and insects in your basement, consider investing in a permanent dehumidifier.

The bathroom is typically the most humid room in a house for obvious reasons. Steamy showers and hot baths create excess humidity. While a whole-home dehumidifier can help reduce overall bathroom humidity, it's crucial to properly vent each bathroom with a fan that expels moist air outside. This will protect your bathroom and attic from mold and mildew growth.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which dehumidifier should I choose: whole-home or portable?

Choosing the right dehumidifier is crucial for maintaining good air quality in your home. If you opt for a small portable dehumidifier, you'll find yourself frequently emptying its basin. On the other hand, choosing a large portable dehumidifier will waste energy and potentially create excess noise.

It's also important to consider whether investing in multiple portable units or a single whole-home dehumidifier suits your humidity needs. Whole-house dehumidifiers are perfect for humid climates and homeowners who prefer a "set it and forget it" system. However, if you live in a relatively dry climate where only occasional dehumidification is required, a whole-home unit may be unnecessary.

Do whole-home dehumidifiers consume a lot of electricity?

Dehumidifiers use less energy than you might think. A small 30-pint dehumidifier consumes around 300W of energy, while a larger 70-pint version uses about 700W. These energy levels are much lower compared to average hair dryers. It's worth noting that most of the energy used by dehumidifiers is utilized in compressing refrigerant gas. For those concerned about energy usage, more energy-efficient options are available.

What size dehumidifier do I need?

Selecting the appropriate size of a dehumidifier depends on both the square footage of the space and the relative humidity within it. Portable dehumidifiers come in various sizes and are smaller compared to whole-home units designed to cover an entire property.

To determine the best humidifier size, make, and model for your needs, we utilize a hygrometer to measure humidity levels. This reading, combined with your home's square footage, guides our recommendation.
