How Can Excess Humidity Affect Your Home?
Generally speaking, the summer heat isn’t what makes us miserable - it’s actually the humidity! With that said, it is always a nice relief to walk into a cool home during the summer and leave the moisture at the door. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. Your AC is supposed to act as a small dehumidifier but can’t always keep up, leaving your home feeling just as moist as it is outside. Here are a few signs that you may benefit from the installation of a dehumidifier:
- Unexplained wet spots or water stains on the ceiling, floor, or wall
- Rotting wood
- Peeling paint, wallpaper, or laminate flooring
- Musty smells
- Frequent trips to the doctor due to allergies
- Condensation on windows
Keep in mind that the biggest factor in mold growth is the amount of moisture in an area. All of the variables needed for mold growth are typically found within a home, this means the factor that you control is the amount of water in the air.
The Benefits of AC Dehumidifiers
While not every homeowner needs a dehumidifier, if you’ve noticed any of the above symptoms, chances are you might want to consider it. These systems work in conjunction with your air conditioner to accurately measure the amount of humidity in an area. If it’s too high, the dehumidifier will filter on to eliminate it.
These small units can have plenty of benefits outside of the obvious drop in humidity inside your home. Other perks include added property value, improved respiratory health, and a boost in energy savings from your air conditioner. The less your AC unit has to work to combat humid air, the better it works, leaving you to enjoy quality savings every month.
