A dehumidifier provides several benefits. As summer approaches, the last thing you need is to suffer from humidity in your home right now.. Many homeowners, like you, purchase stand alone dehumidifiers which require frequent checking to empty the water tank and can only dehumidify one room at a time. If you’ve been looking for a low maintenance option that can keep your in-home air cool & comfortable, then you’ve come to the right place. Keep reading as we unpack the main benefits of a whole house dehumidifier.
A dehumidified home is a more comfortable home. As temperatures and humidity levels rise during the summer, you want to keep your inside air as cool and comfortable as possible. When the air inside your home gets hot and humid, the air gets sticky and your skin gets clammy which can disrupt your body’s natural cooling processes. Installing a whole house dehumidifier can keep you cool and comfortable all summer long.
Protects your home from mold
Did you know that humid air inside your home is a breeding ground for mold? Mold, which is a resource fungus, feeds off of water in the air and lumber (behind your floors and walls). Mold can cause structural damage and unpleasant odors in your home. In addition, certain insects feed on mold and can infest your home wreaking havoc on your family members with allergies. Keeping the air dehumidified with a whole house dehumidifier protects your home from mold and all the other side effects it brings with it.
Protects your home furnishings
Did you know the humidity can damage your home and furnishings? Mold can cause paint to bubble, your furniture to warp, and water damage to your floors and walls. Save yourself the headache of fixing humidity damage by installing a whole house dehumidifier.
Saves your money on cooling bills
Installing a whole house dehumidifier can save you money the next time you pay your utility bills. Air with too much moisture causes your air conditioning unit to work harder to cool your home. By installing a whole house dehumidifier, you will be able to raise the temperature setting on your thermostat as you lower your next utility bill.
As if that’s not enough, whole house dehumidifiers are lower maintenance. Gone are the days of frequently emptying your dehumidifier tank in each room to achieve your desired air comfort. Whole house dehumidifiers are connected to your HVAC system for your entire home through your vents, and are attached to a hose that empties water and moisture from the air into a nearby drain.
