Why You Should Consider a Dehumidifier

August 12, 2020

It has been a hot summer here in eastern North Carolina. To add to the heat, we’ve had some extra humidity to go along with it. We all know that this heat, combined with the high levels of humidity, can make things pretty uncomfortable. When humidity is high it is harder to cool off because airborne moisture holds on to the heat. In the same way this happens outdoors, it can happen in your home too. Here at Advance Mechanical Heating & Air Conditioning, we have a solution for you. A whole-home dehumidifier can be an effective solution to keep your home cooler while tackling high moisture levels.

 

Here are a few reasons you should consider a dehumidifier in your home.

 

Reduce the Strain on Your Air Conditioner
Less humidity in your home means that your air conditioner won’t have to work as hard, because it doesn’t have to battle with the moisture that is holding on to the excess heat. Also, your air conditioner will last longer if it doesn’t have to strain to cool your home.

 

Improve Your Comfort
Without the presence of extra humidity, your home is going to be a lot more comfortable for you and your family.

 

Reduce the Growth of Organic Matter
Excess moisture in your home can lead to the growth of organic matter. By utilizing a dehumidifier, you are reducing the risk of this growth over time.

 

Improve Your Air Quality
A whole-home dehumidifier can also provide some relief from allergies that stem from germs, dust mites and other airborne particles that can accumulate in your home’s air. Allergens thrive in a damp environment. The use of a dehumidifier discourages this growth thus improving your indoor air quality.

 

Protect Your Valuables
There are many items in your home that can benefit from proper humidity control. These items include: books, posters, baseball cards, pictures, comic books, musical instruments, and more. If you are collector of any of these items, a humidifier can insure that they stay in great condition and aren’t damaged by damp air.
