Dehumidification

What Are The Signs You Need Dehumidification?

In addition to suffering from constant symptoms of allergies, you may want to consider dehumidification if you have some obvious signs of high humidity in certain rooms or areas of your home, including:

  • Water stains on the walls or ceilings of your home

  • High humidity rooms with poor ventilation or no ventilation (especially in areas like bathrooms that have no windows)

  • Frequent condensation on the windows in certain areas of your home

  • Small black spots (mold spores) growing on the walls or in areas with high humidity, such as the bathtub or shower

  • Must or mildew smells

What Are The Benefits Of Dehumidification?

  • Dehumidifiers reduce humidity levels, making your home or business less hospitable to allergens such as dust mites, mold, and mildew.

  • Dehumidifiers help reduce odors that can accompany mold and mildew—getting rid of that “musty” or “rotting” smell.

  • These devices help to reduce the possibility that you will develop mold on your clothing, furniture, and other linens (such as curtains or bed sheets).

  • Reduce irritation to your skin and your respiratory system, allowing you to breathe easier and feel comfortable.

  • A less humid environment means clothing will dry faster, breads and cereals will remain fresh longer without getting stale, and you won’t find signs of rust or corrosion on things like computer equipment, electronics, and tools.

  • A dehumidifier helps reduce dust, so you won’t have to clean as often.

  • A dehumidifier also lowers energy costs because it helps your air conditioner run more efficiently. When the air is more humid, the A/C must do the function of cooling the air and removing moisture, which means it has to work harder. This also causes your A/C to wear out sooner, which means you will need to replace and repair it more often.
