Four Benefits of a Whole-House Dehumidifier This Summer
Whole-house dehumidifiers are a great way to keep your home comfortable year round – but some of their most important benefits are delivered in the hot, humid summer months.
Running in tandem with your home cooling system, a dehumidifier pulls air through its return ducts where it removes moisture and returns the dry air to your home. By controlling moisture in the home during the summer, you’ll benefit by getting:
- Cleaner air – If your indoor air is overly muggy, it could mean that dirty, moist summer air is leaking into your home. Dehumidifying the air will remove some of that pollution while also removing most musty smells.
- Better health – High humidity can lead to mold and mildew growth, which can aggravate allergies, asthma, and other respiratory problems. Overly moist air also irritates the nasal passages and skin. Removing moisture reduces these problems and can help you sleep better by clearing stuffy rooms.
- Lower bills – High humidity can make the air feel warmer than it really is – which means you’ll probably turn up your air conditioner to be comfortable. Properly humidified air feels comfortable, so you’ll spend less cooling it.
- Home protection – Excess moisture in the form of condensation can leave stains, damage walls and window frames, and even compromise the structure of your home. Running a dehumidifier removes moisture from the air to keep condensation from forming.
