Most homeowners know that excess moisture indoors can cause a lot of discomfort, but what may be less known is how much damage it can cause over time. It’s no secret that we live in a humid region, and our excess humidity can affect your home, your air conditioner and your indoor air quality. One of the best ways to combat the effects of excessive humidity in Woodstock is to install a whole house dehumidifier. Unlike small, independent room dehumidifiers that address only a small area of your living space, a whole house dehumidifier is integrated with your HVAC system and removes all the excess moisture in your home seamlessly. Of course, to gain the benefits of a whole house dehumidifier, it’s important to hire only a trained expert for installation. The indoor air quality specialists at South Air, Inc., can help you with installation, maintenance, repair and replacement of your whole house dehumidifier in Woodstock, so call us today!
Why Consider a Dehumidifier?
Here are some of the more common reasons why you may want to consider the installation of a whole home dehumidifier:
Avoid Mold and Mildew Development
Mold and mildew thrive in moist atmospheres, and they grow on a whole lot of things, including linens, photos, paper products, clothes, furniture and ductwork. Once mold and mildew start to grow they can be very difficult to get rid of, and if you have allergy sufferers in your home, they may start to have a very difficult time in your home.
Take the Extra Stress off Your AC
Humidity holds heat, which is why humidity makes the temperature feel hotter than it may be. Your air conditioner cools your home by removing both the heat and the humidity, but when there’s excess moisture in the air, your AC has to work twice as hard. Removing the excess moisture helps take the stress off your AC, allowing it to operate at normal levels.
Improve Indoor Comfort
Excess moisture in your indoor air can make the atmosphere feel cold and clammy instead of cool and dry. The whole reason you have an air conditioner is to be comfortable, so don’t let excess humidity compromise that.
