The summer heat is bad enough without adding high humidity to it. Fortunately, New Berlin Heating & Air Conditioning can help you solve both. In the blog below, we’re sharing three ways a whole-home dehumidifier can help save your summer. Read it over, and if you have questions or are ready for installation, give us a call.
How Does a Whole-Home Dehumidifier Work?
Before we share our favorite benefits, we’re answering another question we get all the time: What does a whole-home dehumidifier do?
When the weather gets warmer, it also becomes more humid, causing your home’s moisture levels to rise higher than they should. A whole-home dehumidifier helps re-balance those levels so they fall in the recommended ranges (45 – 55 percent in the summer and 35 – 45 in the winter). Installed as part of your heating and cooling setup, this system removes excess moisture from your air. It’s a simple process that can benefit you in so many ways—more on that below.
Why You Want a Whole-Home Dehumidifier for Your House
The higher the moisture level, the warmer your air. Humidity naturally makes you feel warm and uncomfortable, so by reducing it, you’ll automatically feel cooler. In fact, when things get hot, you can run your whole-home dehumidifier instead of your A/C to cool things down, which can help you save on energy usage.
Better Indoor Air Quality
Harmful microorganisms such as mold and mildew thrive in high-moisture environments. By removing all that humidity, whole-home dehumidifiers make it hard for those microorganisms to live, thus boosting your air quality and reducing the chances of you or your family breathing them in.
On top of these other benefits is a simple one: Whole-home dehumidifiers simply make you feel more comfortable. They reduce that muggy feeling you get when humidity is too high, helping boost your comfort and your ability to relax in your own home.
