Prevent Excess Humidity With Dehumidifers
For some homeowners, excess humidity can also be a problem that requires help from dehumidifiers. Depending on your home’s construction method, it can end up trapping a lot of moisture indoors. This can be quite uncomfortable especially when it rains. Though high humidity doesn’t cause the same breathing problems that low humidity does, it can make the air feel hot, sticky, or clammy.
In addition to feeling unpleasant, high humidity can also cause problems for your household. When humidity levels are above 60%, it is easier for mold to grow. This tiny microorganism can flourish in unexpected spots like inside ducts, under cabinets, and behind curtains. If ignored, high humidity makes it easy for mold to damage your home. Extremely high humidity can also shorten the lifespan of electronics, fabrics, books, artwork, and other items in your home.
If you’re dealing with these sorts of problems, Comphel Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. is happy to help you explore your dehumidifying options. Dehumidifiers remove excess moisture from the air to keep your humidity at a safe level. Some models work by pulling water out of the air while others work by absorbing water. The most convenient option is typically getting Comphel Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. to install a whole-house dehumidifier. These models attach to your central HVAC system and automate the dehumidification process. They help to collect excess moisture before it cycles through your ductwork, so your air feels less humid.
