Benefits of a Whole-House Dehumidifier
The term “dry heat” is often used when describing temperatures. Dry heat is essentially heat without humidity, and it’s widely considered to be much more tolerable than heat combined with humidity. A whole-house dehumidifier removes excess moisture from the air in your home, both to increase comfort and reduce the risk of moisture-related issues in your house. Reduced humidity levels help to prevent mold and mildew development, which can prevent expensive repairs in the future.
Benefits of Dehumidifiers:
- Comfort – If the air in your home is too humid, you tend to get a sticky, clammy feeling on your skin that disrupts your body’s natural cooling processes and makes you feel hot and uncomfortable.
- Reduced Utility Bills – Air with too much moisture in it makes your AC unit work harder to cool your home. Lower humidity allows your HVAC unit to not work as hard, and your electric bill will show it!
- Protection from Excess Moisture – Excessively humid air in your home can cause paint to bubble, warped furniture, and water damage on walls or floors.
- Deodorizing – Extremely moist air allows for mold, rot, and fungal growth in your home. This growth can not only be structurally damaging, but also causes unpleasant odors in your home.
How Do Whole-Home Dehumidifiers Work?
First, the dehumidifier’s fan draws in air and blows it over cold compressors coils. Moisture condenses on the coils, which removes it from the air. The accumulated moisture drips into the reservoir, and the reheater restores the air to its original temperature before returning it to your home. Many dehumidifiers also include a humidistat, which allows you to customize the amount of humidity the unit removes from the air based on your preferences.
