While we have touted the benefits of humidifiers in previous blog posts, including how essential they are for dry winters, in the spring and summer Florida residents suffer from an opposite problem. Too much humidity. As you are likely well aware, humidity makes the hottest day seem even hotter, and is extremely uncomfortable. Not only that, but excessive moisture is not good for your health or for your home. A whole-house dehumidifier is the solution to this problem. Keep reading to discover why you should have one installed ASAP.
You’ll Have Healthier Indoor Air
The relative humidity level in your home should be between 30-50% in ideal circumstances. This lower level of humidity in the summertime can prevent and slow the reproduction and transmission of harmful microorganisms, like viruses or bacteria. With whole-house dehumidification, you’ll be able to keep your air at a reasonable humidity level. This will help protect your family’s health, particularly if they suffer from allergies or asthma.
You’ll Be More Comfortable Indoors
Excess moisture in the air prevents you from cooling down naturally, as the humidity doesn’t allow sweat to evaporate from your skin. This is the reason that a humid day feels so much worse than any other day at the same temperature. A whole-house dehumidifier will keep your home’s humidity levels lower to help you feel more comfortable at the same temperature.
You’ll Save Energy
In addition to keeping you comfortable, being able to keep your thermostat at a higher setting with lower humidity levels reduces your energy usage. Therefore, you’ll be able to save money on your monthly electricity bill. Plus, you’ll be helping the environment by running your air conditioner less, and you’ll be extending the lifespan of your unit for the same reason.
