Are you uncomfortable in your home during those times when you can’t quite justify turning on your air conditioner? Your problem may be caused by too much humidity, which can be remedied by installing a whole-house dehumidifier in your home.
A whole-house dehumidifier is designed to be attached to your HVAC system, but it can operate even when your air conditioner is not in use. If you’re not sure a whole-house unit is necessary in your home, keep the following in mind:
- The ideal humidity range for your home is between 30 to 50 percent. High humidity levels result in mold formation and problems with dust mites.
- Heath problems arise because of high humidity levels including upper respiratory infections, allergic reactions and asthma. Lowering the amount of moisture in your home to appropriate levels decreases the chances that these ailments will bother your family.
- Whole-house dehumidifiers save you money because you’re air conditioner won’t run as much. People run their air conditioner more when the humidity is high because they have trouble sleeping when their skin feels clammy.
