This summer, we’ve all experienced the discomfort of high humidity. And when it gets unbearable outside, you want to come home to cool comfort. While your air conditioner can keep your family cool, if you turn the AC up to combat humidity in your home, you may end up freezing. So how can you eliminate excess moisture all summer long? A whole-home dehumidifier makes this easy.
Here’s how it works: Installed as part of your heating and cooling system, the dehumidifier pulls air from every room in your home through return ducts. It removes the moisture and then sends dry air throughout the house. The dehumidifier will work in conjunction with your air conditioner to efficiently balance humidity levels, but it can also work independently on days when you don’t need the AC.
Installing a whole-home dehumidifier can eliminate many problems associated with excess moisture in your home. Consider taking steps to improve your indoor air quality if you or your family has experienced any of these warning signs:
- Trouble sleeping due to clammy skin or “stuffiness”
- Mold and mildew growth
- Musty odors
- Condensation on water pipes
- Wet stains on walls or ceilings
- Floors or other surfaces feel sticky or “sweaty”
- Worsening allergy symptoms
Issues like these are both uncomfortable and unhealthy, so don’t hesitate to take the first step toward improving your indoor air quality — call Blind & Sons for a free Indoor Air Quality check. We’ll test the air quality in your home with a thorough camera inspection of your home’s ducts, a smoke pen test that will allow us to detect any leaks in your duct work and an indoor humidity analysis. A whole-home dehumidifier may be just what you need to eliminate your indoor air quality problems and allow your family to have a more comfortable summer.
