Better Comfort with a Whole-Home Dehumidifier

Better Comfort with a Whole-Home Dehumidifier | NisAirEven in the Martin and Palm Beach County area’s pleasant sunshine, the humidity can get a little overwhelming. With a whole-home dehumidifier, you can ensure comfortable humidity levels in your home and cut your cooling bills, too.

Control Humidity for Comfort, Health, and Savings

A comfortable indoor humidity level is somewhere between 30 and 50 percent depending on the outdoor temperature. In our humid climate, indoor humidity can easily rise above 50 percent. All that moisture impairs your body’s ability to cool itself by sweating, leaving you feeling hot and sticky. You’re then likely to lower your A/C’s thermostat temperature in attempt to keep cool, needlessly running up your energy bills.

In addition, moist air encourages the growth of bacteria, dust mites, and mold. While bacteria can cause illness, dust mites and mold can aggravate asthma and allergies. Cockroaches also love humid places, and these bugs leave debris that irritate the lungs.

Your air conditioner takes out some of the moisture, but its effectiveness is limited. A whole-home dehumidifier can optimize the humidity level in every room of your house. You’ll feel cooler in summer and less chilly in winter, allowing you to save energy. You’ll also enjoy better indoor air quality.

Does Your Home Needs a Dehumidifier?

One of the signs your indoor humidity is too high is that you never seem to feel comfortably cool even with the A/C set to 70 degrees or lower. In winter, you may feel chilly and clammy even when the heat is one high.

Mold spots are another sign. You’re likely to find these in the corners of your ceilings, especially in the kitchen and bathroom. Mold can also develop on the walls behind furniture, under rugs, and on the undersides of shelves. Even if you don’t see the mold, a musty odor tells you it’s growing somewhere. Peeling paint or wall paper also suggests you need to reduce your indoor humidity.
