Too much moisture in the home can have health implications and be damaging to the home itself as well as its contents. Balanced moisture levels throughout can be achieved by installing a whole home dehumidifier to work with your heating and cooling systems year-round. Below are a few of the key benefits Cincinnati homeowners gain from whole home dehumidifiers.
Better air quality
A whole home dehumidifier balances humidity levels throughout the entire home, keeping them in an appropriate range. This does wonders for the air quality in a home, addressing issues such as:
- Mold growth
- Mildew development
- Musty smells
- Airborne allergens
- Insect breeding
Protects the home
Too much moisture inside will damage structures and furnishings in the home. Whole home dehumidifiers remove excess moisture, providing protection. The dehumidifier aids with common issues such as:
- Eliminates moisture and condensation on surfaces
- Protects wood flooring, furniture, cabinets, and trim from warping
When moisture levels are high indoors, the home’s inhabitants (your family) feel discomfort. A whole home dehumidifier removes moisture that has become a barrier to a comfortable indoor environment.
- Excess moisture is removed, preventing your skin from feeling sticky and clammy, depending on the season
- With lower moisture levels, you won’t be prone to uncomfortable sweating inside
Moisture prevents your body from cooling itself effectively. By balancing indoor humidity with a whole home dehumidifier, your body is able to stay cooler at lower indoor temperatures. You can avoid setting your thermostat lower in the summer without sacrificing comfort when indoor humidity levels are kept within the ideal range of 30-50 percent. You’ll consume less energy, lowering your electric bill.
