Affordable Dehumidifiers in Angels Camp
Dry air isn’t the only thing that can harm your home’s indoor air quality. During the spring here in Angels Camp, the average relative outdoor humidity hovers at around 70%. When that humidity gets trapped in your home, it can be just as bad as dry air in the winter. If your home suffers from high indoor humidity, dehumidifiers can help. Ideally, you want your indoor humidity to stay between 30% and 50% at all times. If your home’s more humid than that, a dehumidifier can extract moisture from the air and drain it away to solve the problem.
High indoor humidity causes several unpleasant side effects.
- Condensation on windows and doors
- Musty odors
- Growth of mold
- Creaky doors and floors
- Peeling wallpaper and paint damage
Your home’s air conditioning system will remove some humidity from your home’s air as it operates. However, there’s a limit to an air conditioner’s capacity to extract moisture from your air. Dehumidifiers remove as much humidity as needed from your home’s air to keep it in the ideal humidity range. Then they drain the excess moisture safely away, protecting your home’s indoor air quality.
