Get Some Relief with a Whole-Home Dehumidifier
Are you wondering why you need a dehumidifier when you already have an air conditioner? Although an AC system reduces humidity to some degree in Greater Atlanta homes, its primary purpose is to provide cool air. For humidity control, your best bet is a whole-home dehumidifier.
Prevents Excess Moisture and High Humidity
Humidity is not good for a house. The moisture begs for mold growth and warped wood. Portable dehumidifiers are better than nothing, but you have to clean them every day.
Removes Moisture From the Whole House
Why keep just one room in a state of balanced humidity when you can enjoy the same dehumidified comfort in every room? A whole-house system will remove excess moisture, prevent potential mold growth and protect wood floors and furniture.
Discourages Organic Growth
Organic growth likes a dark and dank environment. It thrives on high moisture, high humidity and poor ventilation. High humidity alone can serve as a water source for organic growth. The fungus attracts termites, silverfish, and cockroaches that all feed on it.
Increasing indoor ventilation helps to decrease the number of spores floating in the air. This fungus never really dies. If you manage to remove it, moisture and humidity will bring it back.
Reduces Utility Bills
Low humidity makes the air feel cooler. When your home has low humidity, you may be able to reduce heating or cooling costs with no loss of comfort. A temperature adjustment of just a few degrees in either direction can make a big difference in your energy bills.
Requires Minimal Maintenance
Unlike portable dehumidifiers, whole-home dehumidifiers don’t involve daily maintenance. Instead of storing moisture in a tank, a whole-house system eliminates moisture via an attached hose which empties into a nearby drain.
