Whole House Dehumidifiers
Too much moisture in the air inside your home can cause a number of problems, including the growth of mold, mildew, and pollutants that can aggravate the symptoms of asthma and allergy sufferers. Cabinetry, window and door frames, and hardwood floors can become swollen and warped. Condensation on windows, blistered paint, peeling wallpaper, and spots on the ceiling or walls can also be an indication of high humidity levels.
A whole-house dehumidifier, operating in connection with your home’s heating and cooling system, draws in air from all areas of your home through return ducts. It can also be localized to use in specific areas of your home (i.e. basement). Dehumidifiers can reduce the air conditioner load by managing humidity levels. Moisture in the air is then removed, and the drier air is recirculated back into your home.
In addition to providing optimum comfort levels in your home, a whole-house dehumidifier can:
- Decrease dust mite infestations and other common allergens
- Prevent the growth of mold and mildew
Options are available for homes with boilers as well. Contact Stafford Home Service Inc. for more information on the benefits of whole house dehumidification for your home.
