Does Your Home Need a Dehumidifier?
On top of making things more uncomfortable, high humidity levels can decrease a home’s air quality by bringing in more moisture. Dehumidifiers fight the symptoms of excess moisture by removing the water present in the air, which also makes the climate feel more comfortable. Here are some clues your home may be in need of a dehumidifier:
- Air feels stuffy and difficult to breathe
- Increased rate of allergy and asthma attacks while indoors
- Condensation is visible on doors and windows
- Wet spots can be seen on ceilings, floors and walls
- Mold begins to grow inside
- Hands feel clammy and moist
Every one of the items listed above is a symptom of high moisture levels. A few may even impact a person’s health. Others might cause damage to the building itself. If you want to protect everybody under your roof along with your home purchasing a dehumidifier can go a long way toward achieving that goal.
Which Type of Dehumidifier Suits You?
There are two types of dehumidifiers homeowners can choose from. Each has its benefits and drawbacks. One is a whole-home dehumidifier, which is installed to become part of your home’s HVAC system. The other type works on a much smaller scale and is only strong enough to dehumidify a small area. These single-room units only need to be plugged in and are less expensive, but you may need several of them spread across your home to reach the desired effect.
Whole-home dehumidifiers cost a lot of money, but they’re considered far more eco-friendly than single-room units. They use a home’s existing air ducts to dehumidify the entire building. Whole-home models also operate automatically and don’t require much upkeep, so there’s no need to service them often.
