Do You Need a Dehumidifier in Your Home?
High humidity levels do more than make things uncomfortable. It decreases a home’s air quality by bringing in moisture. Dehumidifiers can fight the symptoms of excess moisture by removing the water present in the air. Here are several signs your home could use a dehumidifier:
- Condensation can be seen on doors and windows
- Mold and mildew is growing indoors
- Air feels stuffy and difficult to breathe
- Damp areas on ceilings, floors and walls
- Increased rate of allergy and asthma attacks
- Hands feel clammy and moist
Each of the symptoms listed above indicates the presence of excess moisture. A few may even have health implications, while others might cause damage to the structure itself. If you want to protect your family along with your home, purchasing a dehumidifier can help you achieve those goals.
What Kind of Dehumidifier Suits You?
There are two types of dehumidifiers to pick from, and each has its benefits and drawbacks. One is a whole-home dehumidifier, which is installed as part of your home’s HVAC system. The other, a single-room dehumidifier, works on a much smaller scale and is only strong enough to affect a small area. These single-room units only need to be plugged in and are less expensive than whole-home systems, but you may need several of them spread across your property to have the desired effect.
Whole-home dehumidifiers are more expensive, but they’re also considered far more eco-friendly than single-room units. They use existing air ducts to dehumidify the entire home. Whole-home models also operate automatically and don’t require too much maintenance, so they don’t need to be serviced frequently.
