Why You Need a Dehumidifier

The air we breathe is often taken for granted. We complain about how hot or cold the air is but we tend to overlook the quality of the air we breathe. Unlike us, dehumidifiers don’t take the air they work with for granted. They work around the clock to make sure our lungs are happy. Learn more about what a dehumidifier can do for you:

Warning Signs
The following signs will let you know if a dehumidifier is right for your home:

  • Water stains on your walls or ceiling
  • Musty or mildew smells
  • Small, black spots growing on your walls or ceilings. These spots are actually mold spores that are harmful to the health of you and your family.
  • Frequent condensation build up on your windows or mirrors.

If even one of those warning signs applies to your home, you should consider the benefits that a dehumidifier can provide:

  • If you couldn’t already tell by breaking down the word, dehumidifiers extract humidity from your home. What you may not have know is that allergens like dust mites, mildew and mold thrive in humid conditions.
  • By reducing humidity and removing these allergens, you actually remove their rotting smell. Your home does not have to smell like your garage anymore!
  • The same dust that was mentioned earlier can also collect on your counters and tables. Buying a dehumidifier can help reduce dust build up and leave you cleaning less often.
  • It can also help extend the life of your A/C unit. Without the presence of a dehumidifier, the A/C unit has to work double time. This will raise energy costs and have you looking for a new one sooner than expected. With the dehumidifier removing the moisture from the air, the A/C can focus solely on cooling.
