There are many indicators of too much humidity in your home, whether it be mold spots or excess condensation. But how do you know for certain that a dehumidifier is the solution you need? Here are the top 7 signs:
They reduce humidity levels
Make your home feel less muggy with a dehumidifier, which sucks in the warm, moist air and leaves you with drier air for more comfort.
They help reduce odors
A dehumidifier can also help reduce mold and mildew. Not to mention get rid of that “musty”, “rotting” smell.
They get rid of allergens
Breathe healthier air with a dehumidifier, which works to eliminate allergens, such as dust mites, pollen, and pet dander.
They get rid of water stains
Do you spot water stains on your walls or ceilings? This is a clear sign that the humidity levels in your home are too high, which can be reduced by a humidifier.
They lower energy costs
A dehumidifier also lowers energy costs by helping your AC run more efficiently. This is because when the air in your home is more humid, your AC must work harder to both cool your home and remove moisture.
They boost ventilation
High humidity rooms with poor ventilation, such as bathrooms without windows or your basement could benefit from a dehumidifier as well.
You can run the AC stronger in your home, but a more sound-proof solution is to use a dehumidifier.
