Why Do You Need a Dehumidifier System?

Discover the numerous benefits of having a dehumidifier system. Not only does it improve air quality and enhance comfort, but it also saves you money. When the air is clean and allergen-free, breathing becomes easier. By eliminating excess moisture, a dehumidifier creates a safer and cleaner environment, preventing the growth of mold and musty odors that can harm your health.

Excessive moisture not only poses health risks but also damages your property. Dampness leads to rot, compromising the integrity of structures in your home or commercial space. Floors may buckle or sag due to humidity and moisture. Protect your interior, electronics, furniture, and textiles with the help of dehumidifiers.

In addition to its protective benefits, using a dehumidifier can make your home feel cooler during summer months. This allows you to set the thermostat higher and save on energy bills. With drier air, HVAC units operate more efficiently and require less frequent use.

Experience the difference a dehumidifier system can make in maintaining a healthier living environment while saving costs in the long run.

Knowing When to Use a Dehumidifier

Don't run a dehumidifier all year round. Typically, it's needed during warm, rainy weather and humid summer months.

If any area of your home has a humidity level above 50%, consider getting a dehumidifier. Have Aire Serv® of Southern New Mexico professionals check the air quality by measuring humidity and other factors.

Here are signs that indicate it's time for a dehumidifier:

  • Mold and mildew growth on walls, ceilings, or surfaces.
  • Musty smell throughout or in specific areas of the home.
  • Condensation on windows' interior side.
  • Warped wood floors or furniture.
  • Rotting wood on window sills and baseboards.
  • Water stains on ceilings and walls.
  • Insect infestation indoors.
  • Rooms feeling stuffy or clammy.
  • More allergy symptoms, colds, and sicknesses.

Improve Your Home: Tackling Humidity in Basements and Bathrooms

Basements are notorious for their high humidity levels and dampness. Causes such as leaking groundwater, humid air, improper appliance ventilation, and poor insulation are common. To combat these issues effectively, consider investing in a permanent basement dehumidifier. It will safeguard your basement against mold, mildew, pests, and insects.

Your bathroom tends to be the most humid area in your home for good reason. Steamy showers and hot baths contribute to elevated humidity levels. While a whole-home dehumidifier can help manage overall bathroom humidity, it's crucial to properly vent each bathroom with an exhaust fan that expels moist air outside. This will protect your bathroom and attic from mold and mildew growth.

Frequently Asked Questions

Choosing the Right Dehumidifier for Your Home

Not sure whether to go with a whole-home dehumidifier or a portable one? It's crucial to make the right choice for maintaining good air quality. If you opt for a small portable dehumidifier, you'll find yourself frequently emptying the basin. On the other hand, choosing an oversized portable dehumidifier will waste energy and potentially create noise issues.

Deciding Between Multiple Portable Dehumidifiers and a Whole-Home Solution

Should you invest in multiple portable dehumidifiers or a single whole-home dehumidifier? This decision depends on your humidity issue and preferences. If you live in a humid climate and want an effortless solution, a whole-house dehumidifier is ideal for you. However, if you only need occasional dehumidification in a relatively dry climate, a whole-home dehumidifier may be unnecessary.

Energy Efficiency of Whole-House Dehumidifiers

Contrary to popular belief, whole-house dehumidifiers do not consume excessive electricity. A small 30-pint dehumidifier uses around 300W of energy, while a larger 70-pint model uses approximately 700W. These energy levels are significantly lower than those of typical household appliances like hair dryers. Moreover, most of the energy used by dehumidifiers goes towards compressing refrigerant gas. For those concerned about energy consumption, there are more energy-efficient options available.

Determining the Right Size Dehumidifier

Selecting the appropriate size of your dehumidifier depends on the square footage of your space and its relative humidity level. Portable units come in various sizes and are designed for smaller areas compared to whole-home systems that cater to entire properties. To determine the best dehumidifier for your needs, we can use a hygrometer to measure humidity levels and consider the size of your home.
