High humidity indoors can lead to mold, mildew, poor indoor air quality, and aggravated allergies. Dehumidifiers reduce humidity to prevent mold damage, improve your indoor air quality, and stop the spread of allergens. Residential dehumidifiers vary greatly in size, moisture removal capacity, and features. When shopping for a unit for your home, it's a good idea to let size be your guide. Consider how large of an area you need to dehumidify and choose a unit with a moisture removal capacity that's rated to treat that size area. You'll also want to consider your type of space. Single room dehumidifiers are great for controlling humidity in small and medium rooms. Larger dehumidifiers are ideal for larger spaces like basements, dens, garages, and crawl spaces. You might also consider using a whole house dehumidifier to reduce high humidity throughout your entire home.
Using a dehumidifier in your home can help you save money on cooling costs. Feeling cool requires two things: cool enough air (temperature) and dry enough air (humidity). On hot days, you might find yourself running your air conditioner for longer periods of time simply because the air is too moist and just feels hot. This action results in the dreaded hot, sticky feeling you might experience. However, if the air inside your home is less humid, you'll actually feel cool enough even when your thermostat is set on a warmer temperature. Dehumidifiers help bring your home's humidity level down, minimizing your cooling costs in the process.
Dehumidifiers Help Manage Allergies
Many people with allergies to dust, pollen, and pet dander are also allergic to mold. There are 3 areas in your home that are especially susceptible to mold growth in high humidity conditions. If a mold infestation occurs indoors, your health could be at risk. Using a dehumidifier to control moisture in these areas during the warmer months and year-round if you live in a humid climate prevents mold growth and keeps your home's air healthy.
